The Enabling Development Guidance concentrates on those areas of practice that are particular to enabling development - and by extension other proposals where financial viability is a key issue.
Despite recent changes to the Government’s Planning Policies, namely, the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), the overriding policy approach is unlikely to change. This Guidance still stands as English Heritage’s position on Enabling Development. References to PPS5 Policy HE11 can now be replaced with NPPF paragraph 140.
We are in the process of revising this document to reflect changes resulting from the NPPF and other Government initiatives and to incorporate new information and advice based on recent case law and Inquiry decisions.
