Draft Revised National Planning Policy Framework

The draft revised National Planning Policy Framework incorporates policy proposals previously consulted on in the Housing White Paper and the Planning for the right homes in the right places consultation (see our previous briefing on the Housing White Paper consultation and implications for onshore wind energy here).
Budget 2017 included additional proposals to change planning policy and legislation to bring forward more land in the right places. This consultation seeks views on these additional policy proposals. Of particular relevance for members will be chapter 18 on meeting the challenge of climate change,
flooding and coastal change. 
We ask that any members considering making a response or who may have comments to feed into a CEE response, especially related to onshore wind, get in touch.
