NPPF Changes Consultation 2015
Ensuring Housing Is Delivered On Land Allocated In Plans - Page 15
We would welcome your views on our proposed transitional arrangements.
- We support the ability to carry out a partial review of adopted plans. However, it is not clear how the fast track approach/transitional measures will be implemented and the effect this will have on public consultation and the EIP process. We consider that 6 months is too short if local authorities have to consider how the plan will be amended plus public involvement in the process. Even 12 months seems restrictive as authorities will be dependent on Planning Inspectorate for an early EIP and Inspector’s report.
- The proposals will obviously introduce more complexity into the local plan process so we do not accept that it will not add to the local authority’s burden.
- We do not see how local authorities will be able to implement any new proposals on the lines set out in this document until the policies are included in an adopted local plan.
