National Planning Policy Framework

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has published an update to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

The NPPF was revised in response to the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: reforms to national planning policy consultation on 19 December 2023 and sets out the government’s planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied.

This revised framework replaces the previous NPPF published in March 2012, revised in July 2018, updated in February 2019, revised in July 2021 and updated in September 2023.

The revised National Planning Policy Framework and planning practice guidance to support the framework are available online.
