Planning Aid Wales would like to invite all Community and Town Councils and community groups in Wales to one of four online training seminars on Strategic Development Plans in February 2024.
Every planning application in Wales is currently decided against local and national development plans and policies. In future, they will also be decided against this new form of regional plan.
Four new Strategic Development Plans will be produced, one each for North Wales, Mid Wales, Southwest Wales and Southeast Wales.
These plans are extremely important because they will identify the scale and location of housing and employment growth in each region and will allocate strategic sites for development.
Designed specifically for community representatives, the four 2.5hr online training seminars will cover the following topics:
- The development plan system in Wales and what it means for communities
- What Strategic Development Plans are and how they will be prepared;
- The effects Strategic Development Plans will have on the development plan system and,
- Why and how communities should engage with the preparation of these plans.
As well as presentations on the above, the courses will include interactive exercises and several opportunities for questions and discussion.
