Detail of outcome
In the draft revised National Planning Policy Framework, we set out proposals for revising national planning policy. On 24 July 2018 we published a summary of the consultation responses and the government’s view on the way forward. This accompanies the revised National Planning Policy Framework.
We have also published an equality impact assessment, setting out the government’s assessment of the equality impact of the revised National Planning Policy Framework.
The draft revised National Planning Policy Framework incorporates policy proposals previously consulted on in the Housing White Paper and the Planning for the right homes in the right places consultation - the government responses to these are available at the respective consultation pages.
Budget 2017 included additional proposals to change planning policy and legislation to bring forward more land in the right places. This consultation seeks views on these additional policy proposals. The below National Planning Policy Framework consultation document sets out these proposals and the consultation questions. Details of how to respond to the consultation can be found in this document, and there is a link to an online survey at the bottom of this page.
Below is a full package of documents to support the consultation. Alongside the National Planning Policy Framework consultation documents, we have published for reference the draft planning practice guidance and the housing delivery test measurement rulebook.
