UK planning policy all in one place

The UK Government has created a website that gathers together all planning policy guidance. In addition to official policy documents, the site included key statements to Parliament on planning.

The site’s list of current UK planning policy guidance is the first of its kind and Nick Raynsford, Planning Minister, hopes that it will be a useful tool for local authorities, planners, developers, academics and the wider public.

The new site lists guidance contained in:

  • Departmental Circulars
  • Planning Policy Guidance Notes
  • Minerals Policy Planning Notes
  • Regional Planning Guidance Notes.

Key statements to Parliament on planning issues will also be included on the site, as will a list of research reports and best practice advice published by the UK Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR).
