Deborah McGurran Political editor for the East of England looks what impact the National Planning Policy Framework could have in the region:
“A couple of years ago the old East of England Regional Assembly estimated that our region will need an extra 728,000 new homes by 2031. Just about every town in the region along with many villages would be affected.
…Across the East there are dozens of communities worried about speculative housing developments.
As the proposals make their way through the planning system, we will start to get some idea of the impact this new planning guidance could have on our region.”
