Consultation launched on key secondary planning legislation

Words: Roger Milne
Planning (Wales) Bill

The government has begun consulting on secondary legislation relating to new development management provisions in the Planning (Wales) Bill currently awaiting Royal Assent.

Involved are measures to do with invalid applications, notices and appeals, decision notices, notification of development, consultations in respect of certain applications for approval, appeals against a notice issued in respect of unsightly land, post-submission amendments, and changes to applications made under section 73 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

Some of the proposals directly relate to the new development management provisions in the bill, whereas other proposals promote the wider aim of making the planning system more effective and efficient.
