Former chair of Camden Architects Forum Chris Roche is pushing for a Citizens Planning Charter to try to put a stop to planning committee members taking money for influencing decisions. The problem is one of 10 general issues he says are affecting authorities nationally.

Roche, principal in 11.04 Architects, wants Camden, about whose planning policies and management he has concerns, to achieve a 'fair and reasonable planning system' by adopting such a charter.

Roche also attacked political abuse - decisions being unduly influenced by political considerations rather than planning law, inexperienced planning committees making subjective decisions based upon taste rather than planning law, and the under-resourcing of planning departments.
