ABSTRACT
The article reports on the postponement of the Planning Bill due to the revisions being made by ministers and civil servants in Great Britain. The main objective of the law is to accelerate decisions on important infrastructure proposals such as fossil fuels, nuclear and renewable energy power stations and transport improvements. Non-governmental organizations and Labour Members of the Parliament have reportedly fought against it which led to its delay.
