The Forum is now officially recognised by Epsom and Ewell Borough Council!!
This consultation seeks views on draft revisions to the National Planning Policy Framework (“the Framework”). The text has been revised to implement policy changes in response to the Building Better Building Beautiful Commission “Living with Beauty” report.
The purpose of the National Model Design
Code is to provide detailed guidance on the production of design codes, guides
and policies to promote successful design.
Proposed changes to the National Planning Policy Framework to place greater emphasis on beauty and place-making, and to ensure that all new streets are lined with trees.
The National Planning Policy Framework sets out the Governments planning policies for England. Similar policies are set by the devolved governments for the rest of the UK. The latest of these frameworks was published in 2019 and can be accessed below.
In August, the UK Government issued a Hwit Paper entitled 'Planning for the Future'. It proposes "a new system which is easier for the public to access, transforms the way communities are shaped and builds the homes this country needs. The changes will mean more good quality, attractive and affordable homes can be built faster – and more young families can have the key to their own home."
