Rural Planning Review


The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), along with the Department for Communities and Local Government will be undertaking a rural planning review which will look at reducing regulatory burdens in support of creating new homes, jobs and innovation.

The aim is to boost the rural economy by investing in education and skills, improving infrastructure and connectivity, and simplifying planning laws for rural businesses and communities to ensure the countryside becomes an even more attractive place for people to live, start a business and bring up a family. Already this is causing more businesses to migrate from urban to rural areas.

Rural entrepreneurs and house builders in England will be given the opportunity to have their say on how the planning system can better support rural life, making it simpler for them to expand their businesses and to build much needed new homes.
