- the primacy of the plan is confirmed, ensuring that development must be consistent with the plan
- a better definition of sustainable development, based on the 2005 sustainable development strategy
- the insertion of references to the use of brownfield land and the need to promote town centres
- removal of the incendiary default ‘yes’ to development where there is no plan
- reference to the ‘intrinsic character and beauty of the countryside’, recognising the importance of countryside outside

A Twitter is a pre-arranged chat on Twitter that use an agreed hashtag (in this case, #planning4ppl) to link tweets together in a virtual debate.
They often include a suggested agenda with a specific leader or “speaker” (that’s our Ben Cowell as @nationaltrust) while welcoming a free-flowing discussion between all participants.
Looking forward to your tweets!
