The following Planning practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The original version of the National Planning Policy Framework (2012 NPPF) was published on 27 March 2012, taking immediate effect. It consolidated over 1,000 pages of planning policy statements, guidance and circulars into one document. At the heart of the 2012 NPPF was the presumption in favour of sustainable development. Since December 2015, the government has been consulting on various revisions to the 2012 NPPF, most recently in March 2018 (see Planning analysis: Implications of consultation on revised National Planning Policy Framework). In July 2018, the government published a revised version of the National Planning Policy Framework (2018 NPPF) which replaced the 2012 NPPF from 24 July 2018 onwards. Transitional provisions in Annex 1 of the 2018 NPPF provide that:
the policies in the 2018 NPPF should be taken into account as material considerations in the determination of planning applications from 24 July 2018 onwards
development plans ‘may’ also need to be revised to reflect policy changes brought about by the 2018 NPPF. The 2018 NPPF advises that such revisions should be progressed as quickly as possible, but that existing development policies should not be considered out-of-date simply because they were adopted or made prior to the 2018 NPPF. It advises that due weight should be given to such policies, according to their degree of consistency with the 2018 NPPF
