Land Promoters and Developers Federation

The LPDF welcome the publication of the revised NPPF on 24th July 2018.  We welcome the Government’s continued commitment to significantly boosting the supply of housing and Members of the LPDF look forward to working with the Local Authorities, statutory consultees, communities and all other parties as we strive to achieve the delivery of homes that the country desperately needs.

Whilst the detailed wording of the policy and – more importantly – the implementation of that policy in practice will only be understood over time, the members of the LPDF welcome the opportunities provided by the document and in particular welcome the accompanying amendment to the Planning Practice Guidance seeking to amend the methodology as appropriate in order to ensure that the Government’s target of 300,000 new homes per year by the mid-2020s is achievable.
