National Petition to Review Local Planning Policy Interpretation Launched by Midlands Firm
A successful Midlands company continually blocked by Bromsgrove District Council’s planning department and their negative interpretation of planning policy has launched a national petition aimed at highlighting the disparity between what Central Government is saying and what Local Government is doing.
By launching a national petition Oakland aims to expose the current planning policy lottery, negatively affecting many local communities across the country; restricting growth, stifling jobs and the long term survival of many UK businesses. A family owned multi-temperature food storage and distribution company, Oakland International employs 245 staff and is recognised as a top 100 local employer and ranked in the recent report from the London Stock Exchange as a top 1000 companies to Inspire Britain.
