DLUHC Publishes Update to National Planning Policy Framework for England

The National Planning Policy Framework was updated on 5 September 2023 and sets out the Government’s planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied.

On 5 September 2023 the Secretary of State for the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) issued a written ministerial statement to update policy on planning for onshore wind development in England.

This revised Framework replaces the previous National Planning Policy Framework published in March 2012, revised in July 2018, updated in February 2019 and revised in July 2021.

The online searchable version of the revised National Planning Policy Framework is also available.

The planning practice guidance to support the framework is published online.
