As set out previously, the National Planning Policy Framework is clear that the planning system should support the transition to low carbon. As committed to in the Net Zero Strategy, we will carry out a fuller review of the National Planning Policy Framework.

This will include reflecting the Government's Transport Decarbonisation Plan, to strengthen links between planning and transport.
