    does this in anyway represent the implementation of the shelved Halcrow Report of the 1990s? 20+ years later seems a reasonably acceptable timescale for a land of tomorrow! lol

    Hang on Portman- this is just a “stratagey” - will be another 5 years or so before they can create “policy” - and then perhaps a few years after that we might actually do something!

    Meanwhile luckily the private sector is getting on with quite a bit it self as FIG wont do anthing!

    well said islander1. fig is all plans and talk with very little action and decades later. thankfully we have a private sector with individuals who take the initiative sooner rather than later.

    Correct portman- classic example is the plastic shopping bags - FIG refused point blank to make any legal rule banning free distribution of them - they made it clear they wanted it to happen but onus was 100% on retailers to start a charge system-and face any public complaints - which we pretty well all now do - and donates proceeds to our respective chosen charities.
