UKGBC responds to consultation on National Planning Policy Framework

Parliament Regulation

UKGBC issued a release on Tuesday 7 March responding to the UK Government’s consultation on the National Planning Policy Framework in which it provides recommendations for the reformation of the planning system to more effectively tackle the climate crisis, halt nature’s decline, and develop greater climate resilience. Philip Box, Policy Adviser at UKGBC said: “Many of the government’s proposals set a welcome direction for planning reform, particularly the consideration of carbon accounting and measurement for planning purposes and attention given to small-scale nature enhancement and climate adaptation. However, a great deal of specific detail appears pushed back to future consultations, at a time when our path to net zero and nature recovery simply cannot afford further delay.”
