Revision of Planning Policy Wales Chapter 7 Supporting the Economy

We want your views on the proposed update to national planning policy on economic issues.
Start of consultation: 28/11/2011
End of consultation: 05/03/2012

We are revising planning policy for economic development to make sure that it can deliver our aspirations for economic recovery in Wales.

This work has been informed by a research report, Planning for Sustainable Economic Renewal. This report was written for us by Roger Tym and Partners in association with Asbri Planning.

We also want your views on the structure of a new Technical Advice Note (TAN) which we will publish next year. A more detailed separate consultation will be undertaken on the TAN later in 2012. At this stage we simply want to know if you think the structure of the TAN is appropriate.

A copy of all draft Chapter 7 consultation responses is available on request on cd.  Please email
