Representation 5530 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Mr Colin Johnston

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Vision & Objectives
Representation: I do not see a vision being articulated here, rather a statement about 4 areas which need to be managed. A vision should be both inspiring and attainable and yet build on the lessons of the past. My vision is to 'engage and empower local communities to preserve and improve their environment and by so doing enrich their quality of life.' Please ban the word 'sustainable', the most abused word in planning circles, usually found next to a noun like 'development' to make the latter sound virtuous.
