      The nuances of retail policy in PPS4 are  insignificant compared to the wholesale trashing of rural policy in the same document.

      PPS4 cancels all these sections of PPS7 Sustainable Development in the Countryside:

      Objectives (i-iv) and paragraphs 1 (ii-vi), 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 16 (i-ii), 17, 18, 19, 22, 30 
      (i-ii), 32, 34 (i-ii), 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40 of Planning Policy Statement 7: Sustainable 
      development in rural areas (PPS7).

      They are replaced by policy EC6 which actively promotes horseyculture and diversification of farming into other businesses — but gives no support at all for farming or forestry enterprises.

      This is the malicious swansong of a neo-liberal Labour government which over ten years has done everything it can to undermine farming and food production in this country and open up the countryside as a playground and leafy retreat for its mercantile and property developer cronies. 

      Compare what is left of English rural policy in PPS4 and PPS6 with the admirable Welsh draft TAN6 and you would think you were in a different country!
