"George Osborne, the Chancellor, is expected to announce a review of the Habitats Regulations that protect huge swathes of precious landscape.

"... Sources close to the Department for the Environment believe the review will bring the regulations in line with the controversial National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and propose a ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’ over rules of strict regulations.

"Mike Clarke, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, said the habitats regulations have protected the countryside for almost 20 years."
