Guidance for planning new developments

You can help shape new guidance for developers produced by the Environment Agency, Natural England and the Forestry Commission. 

The three organisations want to help their customers understand the organisations’ respective roles relating to new development, their positive approach to enabling growth in a sustainable way, and how the organisations can assist through early involvement in the process.

The guidance aims to provide, in one place, what developers may need to consider when planning a new development. It also explains the respective roles of the three organisations and how they can help. They are seeking comments on the draft guidance by 19 October.
