Planning for People and Places

Planning for People and Places

The department of Communities and local Governement published the draft National Planning Policy Framework on 25th July 2011 for consultation. This is a key part of their reforms to make the planning system less complex and more accessible, and to promote sustainable growth. They are keen to hear views from all interested parties on the draft and how it might be improved. The consultation period closes on 17 October 2011.

The areas of particular interest to the Manhood Peninsula in view of the recent consultation on 'Towards ICZM on the Manhood Peninsula' are in the chapters under the heading 'Planning For Places', that include approaches to climate change, flooding and coastal change.
