The Department for Transport and the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities have confirmed that Active Travel England will become a statutory consultee in the planning system from June this year. Active Travel England also provided design reviews for relevant submissions to the Levelling Up Fund. The Department for Transport will continue to support DLUHC on its consultation on the National Planning Policy Framework and would encourage all interested in these matters to respond to that consultation.
