1337: Draft National Planning Policy Framework

This paper is taken from a media summary of the ‘Draft National Planning Policy Framework’ which the Government has launched for consultation.

Year of Publication2011

The draft National Planning Policy Framework streamlines national planning policy into a consolidated set of priorities and rules only where it is necessary to do so. It will help ensure that planning decisions reflect genuine national objectives - such as the need to safeguard the natural environment, combat climate change, and to support sustainable local growth - while allowing for local authorities and communities to produce their own plans, reflecting the distinctive needs and priorities of different parts of the country.
