By 27th July 2011 planning No Comments

On Monday the Government released a consultation draft of its National Planning
Policy Framework (NPPF).

The stated aim of Government in creating the NPPF is to replace “over a thousand
pages of national policy with around fifty, written simply and clearly”.

The draft NPPF includes a presumption in favour of sustainable development in order
to ensure that the planning system is more positive about new development,
particularly where it delivers economic growth.
