Local planning authority responses to the draft National Planning Policy Framework

An analysis by the Campaign to Protect Rural England

This brief report analyses responses from local planning authorities to the draft NPPF, and assesses to what extent these responses reflect CPRE’s concerns about the draft policy. Our research found that the concerns CPRE has been raising at the national level are broadly reflected locally by those officers and councillors who will have responsibility for implementing the new system. Local planning authorities raised concerns that a lack of clarity over transitional arrangements and a definition of sustainable development could severely undermine the planning system.
