The Department for Communities and Local Government has launched a test website for its new National Planning Practice Guidance. In making the announcement, Planning Minister Nick Boles claimed that the new on-line guidance will give much needed simplicity and clarity to the planning system and bring about better community involvement. The ‘user friendly’ format is being tested with the intention of making planning practice guidance more accessible and will also make it easier to keep up-to-date.

None of the current planning practice guidance will be cancelled until the final online guidance is in place.

The on-line resource will be open for public comment until 9 October with a final go-live planned for the autumn. The new National Planning Practice Guidance test website can be found here.
