Supreme Court rules Local Plan is a prime factor to be taken into account when making planning decisions

Date: 17/5/2017

The Supreme Court has adjudged that the phrase 'relevant policies for the supply of housing' in paragraph 49 of the NPPF only relates to the housing policies of the development plan, and not to policies that protect the countryside.

Philip Ridley, Suffolk Coastal District Council's Head of Planning and the Society's Natural Resources Subject Specialist, said "The judgement has provided clarification on important issues of planning law and policy relevant not only to Suffolk Coastal but also to many councils which, like us, are seeking to ensure that much-needed housing is provided in the right locations."
