Course Aims:

This podcast discusses the changes brought about by the Government’s new planning policy for traveller sites and accompanies another Landmark podcast on the topic entitled, ‘The New Planning Policy: Establishing a Five Year Supply Within a Year?’ in which Robert Walton deals with the requirement in the new Planning Policy to identify a 5 year supply of sites within the next year. This podcast provides further exploration of the background to the new Planning Policy and considers the other changes made by the new Planning Policy.

Outcomes:
After completing the course you will:
  • Be familiar with the previous attempts made by the Government to ensure that an adequate supply of traveller sites exists and how the new Planning Policy fits into this;
  • Have identified the main provisions of the new Planning Policy and the key points arising from them;
  • Understand what is meant by ‘specific deliverable sites’ and ‘specific developable sites’;
  • Understand what ‘broad locations for growth’ means in this context;
  • Know what the Planning Policy says about the stricter application of Green Belt policy and have considered other forms of protection for areas in the countryside like areas of outstanding natural beauty;
  • Understand the significance of Paragraph 23 of the Planning Policy;
  • Understand how the new planning policy will impact on the previous approach to highway objections to gypsy applications;
  • Have considered how these policies will interact with the presumption in paragraph 25 in favour of the grant of temporary planning permission if there is no 5 year supply.
