Ministerial Statement Revised NPPF

Statement However I see nothing on the NPPF or guidance webpage –  the technical consultation involved the calculation of housing need and the implication of people over wind.

Planning update

My Hon Friend, the Minister of State for Housing (Kit Malthouse) has today made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

The National Planning Policy Framework is fundamental to delivering the homes and other development that we need, achieving high quality places and protecting our environment.

Last year we published a revised Framework, which implemented a range of reforms to help make planning more predictable and transparent, drive up quality and support delivery.

A consultation on further updates to the Framework and associated planning guidance ran from 26 October to 7 December 2018, and the Government is grateful to everyone who responded. Having considered those responses, we are making very minor changes to the text of the Framework, which are reflected in an updated version being published today. A copy of the revised Framework is available on the Department’s web site, alongside our response to the consultation.

  1. The art with government planning policy is as always to keep it vague and let is all play out in the planning system, appeals and law courts. This it appears is the evolution of planning in the UK. Marvelous.
