    Changes in the Planning system: NPPF

    The new national planning policy framework was published in June and has had some far reaching implications on the planning system.

    In particular with restrictive policies on development boundaries, housing and sustainability which mean that it is probably worth revisiting previously refused sites.

    See below extract from a recent appeal.

    In addition there is a new consultation in the budget that may allow demolition of office buildings to allow dwellings.

    Conclusion 

    30. The Council has provided quite detailed evidence over the housing land supply position in the NPA. However, a small scheme of four dwellings would have little bearing on this and not diminish the aim of paragraph 59 of Framework to see housing supply boosted. Furthermore, as recognised in paragraph 68, small sites can make an important contribution to meeting the housing requirement of an area, and are often built-out relatively quickly.

    31. I have concluded that the proposal would not harm landscape character, afford future occupiers reasonable access to services and have no significant adverse impact upon the satisfactory functioning or safety of the highway network. The scheme for four dwellings would satisfy DMDPD Policy GC2 whereby proposals not according with a specific allocation or development plan policy may otherwise be permitted outside defined settlement limits where not resulting in any significant adverse impact. Taking into account the relative lack of harm and modest benefits to housing supply, I conclude that the appeal should be allowed subject to the conditions set out.
