nppf 2018 croppednppf 2018The planning consultancy Lichfields has published a guide to the new revision of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

The NPPF sets out the Government’s planning policies for England and how these should be applied. It provides a framework within which locally prepared plans for housing and other development can be produced.

Lichfields' 6-page Insight Focus summarises the most important aspects of the Government's 73-page document:

This Insight Focus highlights the main areas of policy change affecting housing delivery, from the very start of the planning process (identifying housing need) to councils ensuring a wide-ranging supply of sites and setting out the developer contributions expected to be made on implementing the resulting planning permissions.

It also highlights the different implications that revised national policies will have at the local authority level and beyond, looking in particular at local plan progress around the country, current completions and the scale of developer contributions.
