Food included in new planning policy framework for England

16 August 2018

We join Sustain in welcoming the inclusion of food in the new National Planning Framework for England.

Access to local shops, healthier food and allotments, support for the development and diversification of agricultural and other land-based rural businesses, national policy protection for soils and the benefits (economic and otherwise) of the best and most versatile agricultural land are recognised in the framework.
