    England planning overhaul urged

    England needs a new national planning body to have the final say on major infrastructure projects such as power stations, a report has said.

    The Barker Review also calls on local authorities to allow more building in green belt boundaries in their areas.

    The study also says that England’s planning system must be made both quicker and more simple, and the appeals process needs speeding up.

    Environment groups have already voiced their opposition to the report.

    They fear it will lead to more construction on green belt land, and projects like airport extensions, motorways and new power stations being pushed through against local objections.
