Campaign for Real Ale...

CAMRA Message today...

"Lobby your local MPs in support of the CAMRA backed Protection of Local Services (Planning) Bill (England).

We need you to write to your MP, asking them support the CAMRA backed Protection of Local Services (Planning) Bill (England).

Every year a small number of MPs are drawn from a ballot and are able to introduce a Bill on an issue of their choosing. This year CAMRA persuaded Nigel Adams MP to take up a vitally important Bill to reform the planning system. This is a once in a generation opportunity to radically change planning law.

The Bill would give local councils the power to ensure that services (and particularly community pubs) are not demolished or changed into other uses such as a betting shop or supermarket chain store without following the proper planning process.

The best way to get MPs' support for the Bill is for their constituents (that's you!) to contact them. The more constituents ask an MP to support it, the more likely they are to do so. We need your MP to feel pressure from their constituents in order to understand how important pubs and local services are to their community, and show their support for these vital reforms."
