Draft National Networks National Policy Statement

Response by CPRE to the Department for Transport's consultation

CPRE welcomes the publication of this National Policy Statement (NPS), as we have long called for strategic transport policy to be set out in one place. We believe, however that this draft NPS is fundamentally flawed and should be substantially revised. In particular it fails to consider reasonable alternatives to major road-building, has a clumsy definition of national need for infrastructure and, taken as a whole, would weaken protection of nationally designated landscapes and Green Belt.
