Why we still need the brownfield first approach

This report responds to one of the potentially most far reaching changes proposed in the Government’s consultation draft National Planning Policy Framework.

It also considers the implications of the related recent policy changes made by the Government to drop the minimum housing density range which has until recently been recommended as national policy.
