Issue details

Changes to the National Planning Policy Framework and Draft National Design Code Planning Consultations

Purpose of Report: The consultation runs from 30th January 2021 to 27th March 2021. The scope of the consultation is:
• Proposing changes to the National Planning Policy Framework to place greater emphasis on beauty and place-making, and to ensure that all new streets are lined with trees.
• Publishing a draft national design code that provides a checklist of design principles to consider for new developments, such as street character, building type, facade, and the requirements that address wellbeing and environmental impact, which councils can use as a foundation for their own local design codes.
The report outlines the questions asked by the Government and Officers responses to the questions.

The Executive Member will be asked agree to the submission of the consultation response and detail any further comments.
