Hughes Planning has experience and expertise in a number of areas of planning and we are a specialist planning consultant for 'Para 79' houses of outstanding quality and innovative nature of design in the countryside.

In July 2018, the Government published a revised National Planning Policy Framework (the "NPPF 2018").  The former provisions in para 55 of the NPPF 2012 are now contained in paragraph 79(e) of the NPPF 2018.
