The NPPF: A Digest of Decisions

The National Planning Policy Framework (‘NPPF’) is an extremely important planning document, setting out national planning policy. The Supreme Court in Tesco Stores Ltd v Dundee City Council [2012] UKSC 13 made it clear that the correct interpretation of development plan policies was a matter for the court. The same reasoning applies to national planning policy. It is important to be up to date with recent interpretations of the NPPF in the courts.

This Digest is intended to assist those dealing with the NPPF by providing references to case law where the NPPF has been interpreted by the courts. It is broken down by section of the NPPF and, where appropriate, by paragraph. Paragraphs of the NPPF are expressed in the form ‘NPPF x’, whereas paragraphs of a judgment are in square brackets.
