Renewal area

The future of the planning system in England, published by the Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee in June 2021, suggests that:

Renewal areas are places “suitable for development”, including “gentle densification and infill of residential areas, development in town centres, and development in rural areas that is not annotated as growth or protected areas, such as small sites within or on the edge of villages. There would be a statutory presumption in favour of development being granted for the uses specified as being suitable in each area”. Pre-specified forms of development that meet the design and other conditions of the Local Plan would then receive automatic consent. Other proposed developments would have a faster planning application, being judged against the Local Plan and NPPF, or could be agreed through a local or neighbourhood development order.
