Well done, why was it not commissioned as soon as if no tbefore the NPPF was finalised, a quite necessary delay.
One minor issue – Manual for Streets took years and years to consolidate and fight for should not be cast aside lightly. Before its introduction getting good planning layouts approved was a nightmare.. I note there were no street/urban design experts on the panel. It should be consolidated into a single Housing and Street Design manual (including the stupidly privitised MoS 2) covering all design advice (including from CABE such as BFL).
