You have an opportunity to respond to the Welsh Governements Consultation on the Proposed Changes to Planning Policy Wales Chapter 6: The Historic Environment. The consultation closes on June 13th 2016.
DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE YOUR SAY ABOUT SOME OF THE ISSUES WHICH WILL AFFECT THE FUTURE OF OUR INDUSTRY
View the consultation details on the WG website and submit your responses.
The rationale for the consultation is as follows:
Planning Policy Wales (PPW) provides national planning policy supporting the protection of the historic environment through the planning system. The planning policy contained within chapter 6 has not substantially changed since the first version of PPW was published in 2002. Changes to the current Chapter 6 of PPW are proposed to ensure:
- our national planning policy fully meets our objectives for a well-protected and accessible historic environment that contributes to quality of life and place
- our policy accounts for a suite of recent legislation and guidance that has or is in the process of being prepared for the protection and sustainable management of the Welsh historic environment.
We are seeking the views of local planning authorities, developers and interested stakeholders on the revised chapter 6 of PPW.
