Planning campaign briefing 1 - Development Plans

Development Plans are the legal bedrock of all local planning decisions. This, the first in CPRE's new series of planning campaign briefings explains how Development Plans can help fill in the detail now lacking in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and provide many opportunities for community campaigning. The briefing gives advice on ensuring local authorities meet their environmental and social responsibilities, and how to support parish councils and community groups seeking to prepare neighbourhood plans. The briefing also provides analysis of law and policy changes introduced by the Localism Act 2011 and the NPPF (March 2012).
