Maximising the use of land, strengthened protections for the Green Belt and a greater emphasis on converting planning permissions into homes are at the heart of new planning reforms launched by the Government to deliver the homes the country needs.
A major overhaul to the National Planning Policy Framework will provide a comprehensive approach for planners, developers and councils to build more homes, more quickly, in the places people want to live. Councils and developers will be required to work with community groups to ensure those affected by new developments will have a say on how they look and feel.
A consultation on the revised National Planning Policy Framework will run until 10th May 2018. Ensure you have your say.
