Yet Another Government Consultation! It’s good to be consulted but when the Government appears to have already made up their mind, it is just a bit frustrating. The planning white paper ‘Planning for the Future’ published last year implies they have already decided. Will the public’s views be considered? We don’t know. So we suggest the public give their views by the 27th March.
The new National Planning Policy Framework will set the policy for how planning permissions are decided in future years. The National Model Design Code will set standards as to how houses and housing estates are designed.
