Planning Policy Statement 3: Housing

Planning Policy Statement 3 (PPS3) underpins the delivery of the Government's strategic housing policy objectives.

This version was reissued on 9 June 2011, to provide technical amendments to Annex B: Definitions, to reflect the introduction of Affordable Rent.

This replaces Planning Policy Guidance 3: Housing (PPG3) published in March 2000; and earlier editions of PPS3.
