Changes to National Policy

The Government has recently published its revised version of the National Planning Policy Framework (2018) and subsequently updated aspects of the National Planning Practice Guidance. A significant change relates to the requirement for Neighbourhood Plans to provide an indicative housing figure to meet its identified need.

In light of this change, the Council has produced this briefing note (PDF, 294KB)to inform neighbourhood planning bodies. In addition we are also revising the Statement of Community Involvement to reflect the latest changes to national policy.
