Planning Control

  • J. R. Lewis
Chapter

Abstract

The law relating to planning is discovered mainly in the Town and Country Planning Acts of 1971 and 1972 and the Town and Country Amenities Act 1974. The object of the 1974 Act was to make further provision for the control of development in the interests of amenity, and in particular to ensure the protection of trees and the preservation and enhancement of conservation areas, but it also contained important provisions relating to the preservation of buildings of architectural and historic interest, their surroundings and landscapes.
