Planning Policy Wales
In February 2021 a new edition of the planning policy for Wales was released. This sets the local authorities policy framework for their development plans, including the land use planning policy. There are a number of Technical Advice Notes (TANs) which are supplemented by circulars and policy clarification letters which advise on procedural advice.

Wales Planning Permission
Obtaining planning permission is arguably one of the most important elements in the development process and the right professional assistance is vital to ensure that consent is granted. Appointing the right planning team is vital.
Wales Planning Appeals
We work across Wales on planning appeals. If you disagree with a decision made by a Welsh local authority, or it wasn’t determined within eight weeks (or thirteen weeks for major developments), you can appeal. Plande has a huge amount of experience is appealing decisions. Anyone who has applied for planning permission in Wales can use the planning appeals process. The process to appeal can also be used if you have been served with an Enforcement Notice. The planning Inspectorate oversee all appeals under guidance from the Welsh Government which is based in Cardiff. Welsh Ministers can get involved, but only for large, contentious proposals.
Having a professional RTPI qualified planning consultant such as Plande by your side, is essential to navigate the planning processes in Wales.
