We intend to take forward our Planning White Paper commitment, to replace the need and impact tests with a new test which has a strong focus on our town centre first policy, and which promotes competition and improves consumer choice, avoiding the unintended effects of the current need test. We will consult on revisions to Planning Policy Statement 6 shortly.
