DCLG confirms revised National Planning Policy Framework in Spring 2018 following consultations

NPPF_housing_Feb2017The government has confirmed its intention to publish a revised National Planning Policy Framework in Spring 2018, informed by wider consultations, stating that it ‘will ensure that we not only plan for the right homes in the right places, but that we turn existing and future planning permissions quickly into homes through reforms such as the Housing Delivery Test’.

The Government writes:

Subject to the outcome of consultation on ‘Planning for the Right Homes in the Right Places’, and the responses received to the ‘Housing White Paper’ consultation, the Government intends to publish a draft revised National Planning Policy Framework early in 2018, and to ‘allow a short period of time for further consultation on the text of the Framework to make sure the wording is clear, consistent and well-understood’
