National Planning Policy Framework (#NPPF) published today

Category: News March 27th, 2012 by mbc

I last commented on the national planning policy framework back in December and it’s being published today.

The presumption in favour of ‘sustainable development’ remains and therefore so does the need I’d commented on earlier to properly define what we mean by ‘sustainable development’. I like this quote from Craig Bennett Friends of the Earth’s campaigns director:

[the new regulations] must spell out what is meant by ‘sustainable development’ – to ensure the right buildings are built in the right place and in the best interests of local people and our environment.

…and the Campaign To Protect Rural England, The National Trust and most concerned bodies agree…

Anyway, the document is now available from the communities.gov.uk website and there’s plenty being said at the BBC and the Guardian, I’ll post again once I have a chance to ruminate further.

If you enjoyed that post, then read these…

Forum Competition
Competition now closed I’d love the forum to become a useful resource for asking questions and getting answers related to ‘healthy house’, sustainable, ecological & environmentally aware building.

The National Trust petition opposing the new national planning policy framework
There’s an amount of irony to the statement from Vince Cable in yesterdays Telegraph, that people who object to government plans to make building in the countryside easier are “semi-hysterical”.
