The planning process has been weakened. Big construction projects such as housing developments and supermarkets will be fast tracked through. So we have gone from over regulation of planning to too little planning

    Does this mean that the public and local towns will have less say in what is built in their community. What will it mean for Saxonvale and Frome?

    Less say? We don't have any say at local level it's just lobbying.

    Decisions of planning and the like should be delegated to the elected town council members.

    New homes should be built in existing villages and market towns instead of as part of sprawling new developments of up to 15,000 plots, the Princess Royal has said.

    She argued it would be better for existing rural communities to take the brunt of the 240,000 new homes needed each year.

    All right for royals to tell us where we should build - just like Marie Antoinette. Perhaps she could sell off a bit of her estate for houses.
    The facts are these. Villages have very few jobs so newcomers mean more commuters jamming up the roads. In summer our roads arealready full with people coming from the north and east going to Southamption, South Coast and the Devon and Cornwall resorts. In Beckington the village had agreed to 40 new houses but the government and local authorities have let big develo[per firends build 84 and more to come. No jobs in the neighbourhood or Frome for these new folks. It is wrong to give a blanket figure for all authorities to meet when there are no jobs coming to the area.
    Why more houses anyway? Because the population of UK is soaring and the governments can't or won't tackle it.

    Bigger concern to me is the failure to provide proper levels of social housing amongst these builds, as is required, it's all about capitalism and not addressing the acute housing shortage for tens of thousands of people.

    Pigs to the troughs everywhere.
