Update: the inclusion of culture within the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF)

On Monday 23rd January 2012, members of the House of Lords questioned the government on the inclusion of culture within the NPPF. The government confirmed that the issue was under consideration.

This followed on from the House of Commons Communities and Local Government Committee stating, on 15th December, that it sees ‘a compelling case’ for the inclusion of ‘a cultural dimension as part of the social pillar of the definition of sustainable development’ within the NPPF.
