Home At Last?

Since the last century, I have been using the available platforms to call for a statutory requirement of planning permission for change of use if it were proposed to turn a primary dwelling into a secondary dwelling, a working family home into a weekend or holiday home.

If Michael Gove has caught up, then I claim no credit. I am just very, very glad. The last Labour Government, the model for any future one, was completely unresponsive, and I would not be surprised to see a Labour whip to vote against this.

We are heading for a hung Parliament. To strengthen families and communities by securing economic equality and international peace through the democratic political control of the means to those ends, including national and parliamentary sovereignty, we need to hold the balance of power. Owing nothing to either main party, we must be open to the better offer. There does, however, need to be a better offer. Not a lesser evil, which in any case the Labour Party is not.
