Making sustainable communities an election issue


Small business owners in Australia ought to be interested in the progress of the Sustainable Communities Bill in the UK parliament. As the bill itself states:

The principal aim of this Act is to promote the sustainability of local communities.

According to a press release published at, the bill has the support of over 400 MPs, including over half of all Labour MPs and all Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs.

Local communities are as important in Australia as they are in the UK. I’d like to hear what both sides of politics here think of this legislation in the run up to our Federal election.
