The deadline has gone for the draft National Planning Policy Framework public consultation – but that’s by no means the end of the story!
The NPPF is the biggest shake-up of planning for over 50 years. We believe it will place all of our countryside – including the Peak District National Park – and the wider countryside – under increasing threat. Although the consultation is closed, there’s still some time before the final document is published, and MPs can still make suggestions for changes and improvements.
Friends of the Peak District will be keeping up the pressure over the next few months for a radical rewrite, in order to save our countryside! We urge you to get involved too.
