In July this year a revised National Planning Policy Framework was published, coming into effect immediately.
First published in 2012, the NPPF is the primary expression of the Government’s planning policies for England. The NPPF sets out a framework for the production of locally-prepared plans, and is a material consideration in planning applications. Its correct interpretation is a matter of law, and there has been a wealth of litigation regarding the interpretation of the first version.
Our forthcoming new book, due out in October this year, will explain what it means for all planners, developers and their legal advisers.
