Essential local worker

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), defines essential local workers as: ‘Public sector employees who provide frontline services in areas including health, education and community safety – such as NHS staff, teachers, police, firefighters and military personnel, social care and childcare workers.’

The National Planning Policy Framework was revised in response to the Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill: reforms to national planning policy consultation on 19 December 2023 and sets out the government’s planning policies for England and how these are expected to be applied. This revised Framework replaces the previous National Planning Policy Frameworkpublished in March 2012, 2018, 2019, and 2021 and September 2023, for further details follow this link National Planning Policy Framework updated 2023.
