Land Use Planning

The Land Use Planning Working Group acts to conserve the natural and historic environment by seeking improvements to the national planning system for the benefit of biodiversity, landscape and people. The Group works to ensure that the reform of the planning regime in England helps to deliver better protection and enhancement of the natural environment as a key component of sustainable development.

Chair: Rebecca Pullinger, The Woodland Trust

Update from the group:

Link’s Land Use Planning Group is working to influence provisions in the Environment Bill such as biodiversity net gain, Local Nature Recovery Strategies and conservation covenants – all of which will be crucial for delivering widespread, strategic restoration of nature and creation of habitat to deliver the 25 Year Plan.

The Group is also looking ahead to important policy moments including the Planning White Paper, expected later this year, which will set the direction for planning for many years to come and must have nature at its heart.
