Planning Policy Statement 23: Planning and Pollution Control

Planning Policy Statement 23 (PPS23) is intended to complement the pollution control framework under the Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 and the PPC Regulations 2000.

This replaces Planning Policy Guidance Note 23: Planning and Pollution Control (PPG23) published in 1994.

Please note: Appendix 2B of Annex 2 to PPS23 has been cancelled by the Department's letter of 30 May 2008 to Chief Planning Officers. This letter is available below.
