The planning system in the UK
The Kirklees Local Plan was independently scrutinised by the Government in a series of hearings. Here is the letter from the inspector to Kirklees Council following the hearings
New National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and Minister for Planning
The new framework follows a public consultation launched by the Prime Minister earlier this year to provide a comprehensive approach for planners, developers and councils to build more homes, more quickly and in the places where people want to live. The new rules will also make it easier for councils to challenge poor quality and unattractive development, and give communities a greater voice about how developments should look and feel.
