National Planning Policy Framework prospectus out by Christmas

8 December 2022

In a Ministerial Statement, Michael Gove announced a series of further proposed reforms to the planning system in England including changes to how local housing need figures are calculated, and increased protection for neighbourhood plans against developer appeals. These reforms are to take place “alongside” those contained in the Levelling up and Regeneration Bill.

The Secretary of State also said, “I will set out more detail on the following approach in an upcoming National Planning Policy Framework prospectus, which will be put out for consultation by Christmas”.
