National Planning Policy

The pub and brewing industry has great potential for growth and planning policy can play a crucial role either in stifling or fostering that growth.

The Association welcomes Government moves to streamline and simplify the planning system and give preference to ‘sustainable development’. Under the current system member companies in the pub and brewing industry have often been subject to costly delays when attempting to make often fairly small expansions and alterations.

As a key part of the Tourism Industry in this country the Association is suportive of any measures to promote and enhance opportunities for growth in this sector.
