Course Aims:

On 25 March 2012 the Government issued its new Planning Policy on the provision of traveller sites: ‘Planning policy for traveller sites’ which came into force on the same date as the ‘National Planning Policy Framework’ (27 March 2012). This podcast provides a useful analysis of the new policy by looking at the key changes, focusing in particular on the requirement on Local Planning Authorities to identify a 5 year supply of sites within the next year. This podcast accompanies another Landmark podcast with planning barrister Richard Langham, ‘The New Planning Policy: What Else Has Changed?’ which considers the other changes made by the new Planning Policy.
