Detail

This circular provides administrative guidance on the application of the law relating to planning and nature conservation as it applies in England. It complements the national planning policy in the National Planning Policy Framework and the Planning Practice Guidance.

Although this circular outlines the impact of statutory obligations on the planning system, in some cases the legislation will have an equal bearing on other regimes, for example the Transport and Works Act 1992.

This circular should be read in conjunction with the National Planning Policy Framework and the Planning Practice Guidance.
