In 2013 46 out of 52 Submitted Plans Failed – Happy New Year #NPPF

By failed I mean did not progress rapidly to examination and a finding of soundness.

These plans were either:

1) Found to be illegal mainly through failing the Duty to Cooperate; or

2) Found to have fundamental issues of soundness especially through not fully identifying objective need especially after the NPPF and the revocation of RSS.

So any comfort the government gains from the number of submitted plans increased is misplaced.

One recalls the preface to the NPPF.

in recent years, planning has tended to exclude, rather than to include, people and communities. In part, this has been a result of targets being imposed, and decisions taken, by bodies remote from them. Dismantling the unaccountable regional apparatus and introducing neighbourhood planning addresses this.

Yes it addressed it by making it much much worse.

  1. I think you mean in 2013 don’t you Andrew? I know you have a pretty good grasp of the subject, but not even you can tell the future can you?? Happy New year.
