John Rhodes – Have the Last Four Years of the #NPPF just been a Bad Dream Then?

Four years ago when the NPPF was being mooted many of us warned

-It would lead to less housing being allocated in local plans

-The government would need to set firm rules for SHMAs and allocation of OAN

-The DTC would be no substitute for strategic planning

-The abolition of strategic planning would be a disaster

-It would take years for cooperative arrangements for joint working and agreement of housing overspill to work through.

John Rhodes of course poo pooed all of these.  Now in his Local Plan Experts Group Report he admits all of this was true.  Expert at what screwing up planning and now realising that you have failed spectacularly?
