BACKGROUND GUIDANCE

National Planning Policy Framework

If you have ever wondered where some of the planning policies that we all enjoy the benefit of come from, then refer to the Government's National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

National Planning Practice Guidance Portal

As well as the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the Government has also published the Planning Practice Guidance portal which provides guidance to Planners, Councillors, planning applicants, developers and members of the public as to how the National Planning Policy Framework is to be used.

The Planning Practice Guidance includes a section specifically about neighbourhood planning. This provides advice on the neighbourhood planning system introduced by the Localism Act including key stages and decisions (e.g. deciding neighbourhood areas, the legal tests for neighbourhood plans and the process of independent examination and referendum).
