National planning practice guidance NPPG
It was created following the External Review of Planning Practice Guidance prepared by Lord Taylor of Goss Moor and published in 2012. The Taylor Review found '...it is very clear that the old way of doing things is no longer fit for purpose. We have made recommendations for a modern web-based resource that is clear, up-to-date, coherent and easily usable, not just by planners and developers, but the public too.'
The website was launched as a beta site by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) on 28 August 2013 for public testing and comment. It claimed to have reduced the volume of guidance by over 90 per cent. The beta site was closed on 14 October 2013.
Following consideration of comments received, DCLG launched the full site on 6 March 2014 accompanied by a Ministerial Statement including a list of the previous planning practice guidance cancelled when the site was launched (ref Written ministerial statement by Nick Boles on local planning).
