What we do

National Planning Policy Framework

The government has distilled hundreds of pages of planning regulations and guidelines into a concise 59 page document.


A key plank of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) is the ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’ – ie sensible development should be allowed to go ahead unless there are very good reasons why it shouldn’t.


We welcome the document and the way it will streamline the planning process. We believe that the country desperately needs new homes and that the economy needs to grow. The current planning system can hinder such development; its proposed replacement will encourage it.
