The draft National Planning Policy  Framework #NPPF

 Jul 18 The government is due to publish the draft National Planning Policy  Framework (NPPF) imminently. Will it past our eight placemaking tests?”

 

1 Does it restore a genuine commitment towards sustainable development and the welfare of future generations?

 

2 Does it reflect the Garden City Principles by committing to using part of the profits from development for the long-term benefit of the community?

 

3 Does it rewrite the viability test to ensure that policy which enhances people’s lives and saves public money over the long term is equally as important as landowner and developer profit?

 

4 Does it prioritise good design and set out mandatory space standards for new homes?

 

5 Does it re-prioritise action on climate change, making clear that planning must deliver the carbon reduction target stated in the Climate Act?

 

6 Does it prioritise the promotion of people’s health and well being in planning decisions?

 

7 Does it focus on a meaningful definition of housing affordability based on people’s ability to pay, prioritising social rented homes?

 

8 Does it defend people’s rights to participate in the planning process?
