User guide: How to update DCP Print with NPPF guidance

The NPPF was published at the end of March and we have substantially updated the DCP manual to reflect the changes introduced by it. For DCP Print subscribers, you now have the option of viewing and printing sections that have been updated in relation to the guidance.

We have now updated all of the national guidance sections found in chapters 7 to 31 of DCP to reflect the changes imposed by the NPPF. We intend to issue these pages in print to you over the next few months, however rather than wait for these to arrive, we have made them available to you online immediately, simply click here.*

Download the pages, then print off after clicking on the link above and file according to the following filing instructions available here. Please note that you will have to four hole punch the pages in order to file them. You can then replace these pages when we issue the pages as per normal over the coming months.

If you have any questions or are unsure what to do, please contact customer sevices on 01452 835820 or email

*You will need a PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat to view these files
