Consultation Details of the NPPF Revisions

The draft revised National Planning Policy Framework incorporates policy proposals previously consulted on in the Housing White Paper and the Planning for the right homes in the right places consultation - the Government responses to these are available at the respective consultation pages.

Budget 2017 included additional proposals to change planning policy and legislation to bring forward more land in the right places.  This consultation seeks views on these additional policy proposals.  The National Planning Policy Framework consultation document (below) sets out these proposals and the consultation questions.  Details of how to respond to the consultation can be found in this document including an online survey.

Below is the full package of documents to support the consultation.  The consultation closes at 11.45pm on Thursday 10 May 2018.
