Planning Resource has just published news that the long awaited revisions to the NPPF may be released on Monday 5th March "according to well-positioned sources" at MHCLG.

If this is true (and we only have a few days to wait in order to find out) then the publication will be several weeks earlier than anticipated. 

The Secretary of State has promised a large number of amendments to the NPPF - most of which are set out in the quotation below. So we may all have plenty to chew our pens over on Monday, if the rumours are true...

The expected draft is only a consultation draft - with final revisions due in the Autumn - but given the focus on increasing housing supply and densities it should certainly prove to be an interesting read.
