    Teignbridge Lib Dems have, at today's Teignbridge District Council Executive Committee, branded the Conservative Government's Local Plan housing diktat as a veiled developers' charter.

    Lib Dem led Teignbridge District Council are developing a new version of the Local Plan as proscribed by central government. Today the executive agreed to go to public consultation on potential sites for future development. A set of selected sites will join the set of environment protection and climate change local plan policies that went to consultation last year.

    Here's a rundown of the key Bills being proposed by the Government in the Queen's Speech

    Sovereign Borders Bill

    The bill changes asylum rules, including making claims inadmissible if the person has arrived in the UK "illegally". The government has closed the UK's resettlement schemes, meaning there are no safe and legal routes into the UK.
