National Planning Policy Framework

Click here for the full text of this all-important document which governs current planning law.

Especially, have a look at Section 14 on Page 4 which details the absolutely central place of ‘sustainability’ (and tries to explain what it means).

“...At the heart of the National Planning Policy Framework is a presumption in favour of sustainable development, which should be seen as a golden thread running through both plan-making and decision-taking...”

Clearly, drawing attention to an apparent lack of ‘sustainability’ ought to weigh heavily with the planners when they judge the merits of any particular application.
