National Planning Policy Framework

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) sets out the Government’s planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied. It provides a framework within which local people and Councils can produce their own distinctive local and neighbourhood plans, which reflect the needs and priorities of their communities.

Charnwood’s Local Plan and Core Strategy must be in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework.
