Revised National Planning Policy Framework

Collects documents relating to the revision of the National Planning Policy Framework published 24 July 2018.

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is publishing the revised National Planning Policy Framework. This is the first revision of the National Planning Policy Framework since 2012. It implements around 85 reforms announced previously through the Housing White Paper, the planning for the right homes in the right places consultation and the draft revised National Planning Policy Framework consultation.

The revised National Planning Policy Framework will be a vital tool in ensuring that we get planning for the right homes built in the right places of the right quality at the same time as protecting our environment.

There will be further updates to the national planning guidance in due course. If you would like to be notified when changes are made to planning guidance please subscribe.
