    Presentation Title


    ‘The Effect of National Planning Frameworks at Promoting Economic Development’




    The National Planning Policy Framework for England was published in March 2012 and formed part of the Conservative Government’s pro-growth agenda.  It sought to simplify a cumbersome raft of national planning policy documents, and introduced a powerful ‘presumption in favour of sustainable development’.


    After five years of operation, there are differing opinions on its effectiveness at promoting economic development.  With the Irish Government due to publish a draft of the new National Planning Framework later this year, are there lessons that can be learnt from the UK experience?
