National Planning Policy Framework (Update)philevers
The emerging National Planning Policy Framework continues to make headlines within the national press, particularly owing to the new presumption in favour of development. Many parties, including the CPRE have seen this as an invitation to open the flood gates to developers, with little attention given to safeguarding the character of areas. The Government maintain that adequate safeguards will exist, principally though Neighbourhood Plans. The final version of the NPPF is due to be published in April 2012.
