It was a busy weekend for our Design Director, Darren Blackwell, as he spent two days at the Southern Homebuilding and Renovating Show in Sandown Park, Surrey, giving valuable design and planning advice at the Oakwrights design stand. Darren will be in touch, very shortly, will all the clients he spoke to during the show to discuss their projects.

Industry news

The much anticipated 59 page reform of English National Planning Policy Guidance was published 27 March 2012 and came into force on 1 April 2012. The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) is a key part of the planned amendments to the planning system, meant to make the process less complex and more accessible, allowing the effective protection of the environment and the promotion of sustainable growth. The NPPF will replace all current Planning Policy Statements (PPS) and Guidance Notes.
