On 5 March 2018, the Prime Minister announced a major overhaul to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). The aim of these changes is to help planners, developers and councils build more homes, more quickly with the aim of delivering 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s.

In our response to the draft revised NPPF, which closed on Friday 11 May, we set out our core belief that to create radical, lasting reform the NPPF needs design at its heart. This will unleash the full potential of design to deliver the homes that we want, we need, at the pace required and which develop the neighbourhoods where we want to live.
