long, long title.
My Bill has been approved and the long title confirmed;
That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require planning authorities to conduct a local referendum before considering planning permission for new large-scale waste recovery or disposal facilities which involve the recovery or disposal of waste from more than one county area; to provide that planning authorities and the Secretary of State must not grant planning permission if the result of such a referendum indicates that local people do not wish a facility to be developed; and for connected purposes.
I have until April the 6th to have the case/speech pulled together. Given that the Bill calls for more power to be devolved to local people, I am going to ask locals if they would like to give me a few points written in their own words, that they would like me to read out in the chamber and attribute during the reading of the BIll.
I can't think of a better way to take constituents into Westminster than that.
