Consultation on revised planning policy framework for England

13 April 2018

Consultation on revised planning policy framework for England is in process, the revisions are focussed on “meeting the challenge of delivering the right homes in the right places”.

But how will planning make sure the residents of those homes will live in a sustainable food system? Will buildings be built with adequate kitchen and dining space, access to food growing, and access to healthy retail? Will prime farmland be protected for growing food?

Paragraph 92 proposes that planning policies and decisions should “enable and support healthy lifestyles, especially where this would address identified local health and wellbeing needs – for example through the provision of safe and accessible green infrastructure, sports facilities, local shops, access to healthier food, allotments and layouts that encourage walking and cycling.”

Consultation closes at 11:45pm on 10 May 2018
