National Planning Policy Framework changes

The revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) sets out government’s planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied. These were updated on 20 July 2021.

As expected, the Government published an updated version of the National Planning Policy Framework, following consultation earlier this year. This replaces the previous version which was most recently updated in February 2019.

The revised NPPF is now a material consideration in all planning applications and appeals. If you have recently submitted a planning application that would benefit an update on the back of these changes to increase weight in favour, get in touch and our planning team can help.

For more information on what the changes mean for you – whether you are a landowner, developer, property company or local authority, get in touch with Brett or Francesca on 02382 358580.
