Over the past two years the Welsh Government has been commissioning a range of evidence to inform its development of a Planning Reform (Wales) Bill and a wider package of proposals. The time is drawing near for the results of this work to be revealed and the Welsh Government plans to publish the draft Bill and accompanying consultation package in December. At this year’s RTPI Cymru Annual Review we will be holding a discussion panel to hear the latest on the consultation timetable and to discuss the views of the Minister for Housing and Regeneration, Carl Sargeant AM, on the planning system outlined in the October edition of The Planner, and explore what we can all do to assist delivery of the planning reforms.
The afternoon will include a presentation by Rosemary Thomas, Chief Planner, Welsh Government on the consultation process for the draft Planning Bill and accompanying consultation package, followed by a panel to discuss a key requirement to deliver any changes, i.e. what can be done to facilitate and secure culture change from different perspectives.
Following the panel event we will hear a review of RTPI Cymru’s year in 2013 and have the changeover of the RTPI Cymru Chair and also look forward to 2014, when the RTPI will be celebrating its Centenary.
