This note discusses the UK government’s proposed reforms to the land use planning system. It considers the case for reform and the extent to which the reforms are likely to meet their objectives. It then makes some suggestions on how the National Planning Policy Framework could be improved. It should be read alongside our companion evidence paper: ‘What we know (and don’t know) about the links between planning and economic performance’.
