Street Vote Development Orders

Street Vote Development Orders

6th February 2024

Dorset CPRE responds to open Consultation on Street Vote Development Orders

Whilst we welcome the opportunity that Street Vote Development Orders provide for local communities to take a pro-active role in facilitating development in their neighbourhoods, we are concerned that the system is open to being gamed by property speculators. We strongly believe that Local Planning Authorities are best placed to make decisions on development proposals in their area and are strongly opposed to the further centralisation of town planning as proposed in Street Vote Development Orders.

Our comments are set out below on the Government’s proposals for the operation of Street Vote Development Orders:-

The majority of rural villages have active Parish Councils. Where a Street Vote Development Order is proposed in a village with a Parish Council, the Parish Council should be engaged in formulating the proposal.

The consultation closed on 2nd February.
