Planning law changes outlined by the coalition government this week have been welcomed by the British Property Federation (BPF).The National Planning Policy Framework has been designed in order to make it easier to get developments up and running, while retaining protection for the country’s green spaces.According to Liz Peace, chief executive of the BPF, the amendments that have been made to planning law are “sensible”, while she also described the new document as “more moderate”.”The changes to the framework do not, however, alter its overall objective of supporting well-planned sustainable growth within a streamlined, plan-led system,” she said, adding the coalition has to provide clarity about how the rules and regulations are going to be implemented.Changes to planning law had to be made by the coalition as the previous legislation was “complex” and “unwieldy”, said the Department of Communities and Local Government when it unveiled the new framework.Posted by Charles Webb
