NALC to develop new planning guides
The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) to develop new planning guides for local (parish and town) councils as part of its support package on housing and planning matters.
NALC is working with the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and English Rural to update guides on planning and develop a new guide on housing design.
Since 2011, national policy and legislation have shifted considerably. To better reflect the current legislative and cultural climate, NALC is committed to providing members with the most up-to-date support.
NALC is in the early stages of all three guides and is asking local councils to provide feedback on existing planning guides by completing a short survey.
The previous guides Planning Explained, How to Respond to Planning Applications, and How to Shape Where You Live: A Guide to Neighbourhood Planning, NALC produced with CPRE to provide planning advice.
