Civic Voice is calling for all political parties to make a firm manifesto commitment to give communities a meaningful voice at every stage of the planning system and in doing so, create an Accessible, Balanced and Collaborative Planning System, which ensures we move from talking to the ‘already engaged’ to having everyone engaged. The call was made by Civic Voice Chair, Joan Humble launching their manifesto for the General Election 2019, emphasising an urgent need for a rebalancing of power within the planning system.
