Advice Note on Transition to the Localism Act and the National Planning Policy Framework

Date: 4/5/2012

This note has been prepared to offer some information and advice to authorities considering how to respond to the enactment of the Localism Act and the publication of the finalised NPPF.

This advice note focuses on five matters:

  • the new flexibility in relation to the local plan
  • some implications of the duty to cooperate
  • how LPAs can update or amend their local plan to make it compliant with the NPPF
  • retaining national or regional policy which will otherwise be lost
  • development management decision-making and the NPPF
