Details

This document gives details of how government has taken account of the Transport Select Committee’s recommendations on the national policy statement on national networks. It also explains how government has responded to the points raised in the House of Lords debate.

The national networks national policy statement (NN NPS) is a technical planning policy statement. It sets out policies against which the Secretary of State for Transport will make decisions on applications for nationally significant road and rail infrastructure projects.

As part of the scrutiny of the NN NPS, the Transport Select Committee held an inquiry which called for written evidence. A series of oral evidence sessions were held, and then it published a report with recommendations.
