National Planning Policy

National Planning Policy

Since 2002, Planning Policy Wales (PPW) has been the single national land-use planning policy document for Wales. Legislative changes brought about by the Planning (Wales) Act, Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act and Environment (Wales) Act have meant that we need to ensure that PPW remains up to date and assist planners, at all levels and sectors, in delivering high quality development in Wales.

 We have taken this opportunity to revise planning policy in a number of key areas including housing, energy, the environment and transport.

 WG are currently consulting on the revised Edition 10 until 18th May 2018.

Technical Advice Notes

Planning Policy Wales is supplemented by 22 topic based Technical Advice Notes (TANs).  A list of current Technical Advice Notes can be found here
