  • Study into Planning Committees in Wales

    The Independent Advisory Group (IAG) produced its report "Towards a Welsh Planning Act: Ensuring the Planning System Delivers". The Report advises that "An independent body is commissioned to conduct a study of the operation of Planning Committees in Wales to determine whether there is a link between efficiency and effectiveness and committee size." Consequently Welsh Ministers invited the Royal Town Planning Institute in Wales (RTPI Cymru) to take forward the recommendation.

    The report is now available to view along with further information here.
