The draft Advice Note takes into account changes to the National Planning Policy Framework, and other documents such as the National Design Guide, as well as changing technology for visualising proposed tall buildings. The update also includes a greater focus on plan-led approaches throughout, extended sections on design and the efficient use of land, and clear case studies.
