Consultation description

This consultation is seeking views on some specific changes to National Planning Policy in the following areas:

  • broadening the definition of affordable housing, to expand the range of low cost housing opportunities for those aspiring to own their new home
  • increasing residential density around commuter hubs, to make more efficient use of land in suitable locations
  • supporting sustainable new settlements, development on brownfield land and small sites, and delivery of housing allocated in plans
  • supporting delivery of starter homes

A draft equalities assessment is also being published and this consultation also seeks views on the draft assessment and any additional evidence that should be taken into account.
