Sustainable Communities Bill - Update

The campaign for a Sustainable Communities Bill, headed up by Local Works, which I blogged on back in October here was immediately adopted by the MP who came out top of the Private Members Ballot - thanks to all those who worked hard lobbying for this. The Bill now enters the next stage with a reading set for Friday 19th January - a hurdle it must clear if it is to proceed. Fridays are not a good day for Private Members Bill discussions as many MPs head off early to their constituencies for the weekend, so Local Works are asking for renewed pressure on MPs to back the Bill and be in the House of Commons on 19th January to vote it through - 100 MPs are needed to do this. Action points to let UK residents help at this stage of the campaign are set out on the Local Works website here.
