David Cameron said "I care deeply about our countryside and environment. Our vision is one where we give communities much more say, much more control. The fear people have in villages is the great big housing estate being plonked down from above. Our reforms will make it easier for communities to say 'we are not
going to have a big plonking housing estate landing next to the village,
but we would like 10, 20, 30 extra houses and we would like then built
in this way, to be built for local people"
We rest our case!
