Red Alert - NPPF consultation

Please respond by May 10th 

 

Currently, the National Planning Policy Framework says

"When determining planning applications, local planning authorities should: give great weight to be benefits of mineral extraction, including to the economy.”

 

The Government wants to change this to

“Minerals planning authorities should: recognise the benefits of on-shore oil and gas development, including unconventional hydrocarbons, for the security of energy supplies and supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy; and put in place policies to facilitate their exploration and extraction;”
