April 2012 National Planning Policy Framework published

The Government has now published the new National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) (27 March 2012) and the policies contained within this apply from the day of publication. The implications of the NPPF will really only be known over the next few months as it is tested, but it does sweep away the majority of other Planning Policy Statements and certain Circulars. See our briefing note to find out what it means for you at the following link http://arcplanning.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/April-2012-Briefing-Note-National-Planning-Policy-Framework1.pdf
