Because the present National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) policy does not amount to protection of Best and Most Versatile agricultural land (BMV) - merely a requirement to take it into account - I believe that there should be a specific direction in the NPPF to plan positively for the future use of Best and Most Versatile agricultural land (BMV) for benefits beyond food production. Areas covered should include increased biodiversity and an increased level of resilience for agriculture. We really do need to maximise UK production sustainably, and not rely on world markets, and the loss of above average farmland should once more become a prime consideration in planning decisions.
