Following the close of the government’s consultation on changes to the National Planning Policy Framework and a new National Model Design Code, this NLA webinar presented built environment professional what they need to know about the latest planning reforms. 
 
How are environmental policies going to be strengthened to meet the challenge of climate change? How will “beauty” and “successful design” be imbedded in local design codes, guides and policies? What support will local authorities receive to deliver against these targets? And what are the implications for designers and planners?
