THE NEW NATIONAL PLANNING POLICY FRAMEWORK

The Government is in the process of updating the rules which local authorities are obliged to follow when preparing local plans and determining planning applications.  Whilst the Government has sought to portray the changes as substantial – and indeed the NPPF has been completely restructured and the wording of many sections tweaked – most of the proposals have been announced previously.

Key changes announced include those shown opposite, some of which may have particular interest to Halstead GBF Group, as highlighted in red.
