Question for Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities

UIN 151280, tabled on 23 February 2023

To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, what recent assessment he has made of the impact of changes in the National Planning Policy Framework on the supply of new homes.

Answered on

28 February 2023

This Government is committed to accelerating housing delivery to make home buying a reality for a new generation. We want decisions about homes to be driven locally and we want to get more local plans in place to deliver the homes we need. That is why we remain committed to a 300k target.

I refer the Rt. Hon. Member to the impact assessment for the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill here.

The proposals in the National Planning Policy Framework consultation are not, at this time, government policy. We will carefully analyse the responses to the consultation, and any subsequent changes in policy will be confirmed when the Framework is updated later in 2023.
