SBC & Planning

It is important to remember that SBC has to operate within the policies laid down by central government.

The National Planning Policy Framework tells local authorities what they can and cannot do and central government issues instructions to local authorities about how many houses they must build.

"The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) was first published on 27 March 2012 and updated on 24 July 2018 and 19 February 2019. This sets out the government’s planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied. "

The NPPF can be accessed and searched online
