Detail of outcome

On 4 December 2017 the department published a consultation document seeking views on draft Regulations made under section 16 of the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017.

The Regulations provide the detailed provisions which enable the creation of New Town Development Corporations that are overseen by the local authority or authorities covering the area designated for the new town.

The Regulations amend the New Towns Act 1981 to create a new option of local authority oversight rather than replacing the existing provisions for Secretary of State oversight.

This document is a summary of consultation responses to the draft regulations, including the government response and changes that have been made in light of the consultation.

We’re seeking views on draft regulations which will enable the creation, via further statutory instruments, of locally led New Town Development Corporations.
