There is much to commend the NPPF but successful implementation at local level could be challenging
The new national planning policy framework (NPPF) has been broadly welcomed, and with good reason. It captures many of the ideas that industry experts have been calling for to create better places for people. A whole section is dedicated on promoting healthy places and wellbeing, for example by encouraging site layouts that promote walking and cycling. It also recognises the need for planning policy to align with the Climate Change Act and DEFRA’s 25-year environment plan, plus it offers greater protection for ancient trees and woodlands.
