National Planning Policy Framework

The government has published its revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

While the document does list older people and people with a disability when having regard to the size, type and tenure of housing needed in local assessments, there is greater emphasis on 'place making' - achieving well-designed attractive places that are safe, inclusive, accessible and promote health and wellbeing.
