Statement on Places for Everyone Examination in Public

The following statement has been issued today (Wednesday 14 December) regarding the ongoing Examination in Public of the Places for Everyone plan:

The Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities has announced through a Written Ministerial Statement that there will be a consultation on a revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), starting before Christmas. 

The nine Places for Everyone districts will consider and fully participate in any consultation on the detailed proposals of this latest round of interventions from Government when the draft NPPF proposals are published.

The nine districts note that the Written Ministerial Statement sets out proposals for consultation rather than immediate changes to Government policy. Consequently, the Inspectors have been clear that the examination of Places for Everyone will continue  under extant policy unless and until such time as this policy changes.
