Statement following today's National Planning Policy Framework

Following today's announcement by the Government on the National Planning Policy Framework Robert Hunt Executive Director of Veolia Environmental Service has commented:

“To accelerate the UK’s growth encouraging investment in key infrastructure is essential, not optional. Today’s announcement in favour of sustainable development will help green light projects with extremely positive economic and social outcomes by creating real and positive employment in local communities. Just as the major 19th century industrial projects created wealth and social advancement so too will key investment in Britain’s key service infrastructure. We must compete with our European neighbours and these simplifying reforms will help to reposition the UK as a vibrant economic hub.”
