The Conservatives will bring in and enforce tough new laws to protect the countryside.
I have seen how disruptive and unfair it is when people build or set up camp on rural land without permission. We need to make sure that the countryside is protected and that the law is obeyed. Priti Patel has announced new plans which would allow the police to arrest those who set up illegal campsites on private or public land. Likewise I want to see an improved planning system that allows those who build on green belt without permission are prosecuted immediately.
