DLUHC Consultation closing 18th October 2023

The Government is consulting on proposed changes to Local Plan Making. The consultation runs for 3 months closing on the 18th of October 2023.

The topic of the consultation set out at the beginning of the document is: “A consultation on our proposals to make local plans (and minerals and waste plans) simpler, faster to prepare, and more accessible.”

Some of the changes currently proposed are limited in their extent with a more substantial review promised at a later stage. The HUDU team will be working with London’s five Integrated Care Boards to respond to the consultation and the final response will be published on our website. We welcome partners sharing their view on the proposed changes and particularly how they support improving health and wellbeing and addressing health inequalities, and what further changes should be included to this end.
