North Wales Regional Planning Guidance
‘Planning Policy Wales’ does not provide defined regional planning policy guidance or a sub regional policy context for the preparation of UDPs. Instead, the Welsh Assembly Government advised local planning authorities to collaborate in setting strategic planning objectives and policies for their areas, and to establish appropriate voluntary working arrangements to achieve this. This initiative will now be used in the preparation of the Wales Spatial Plan by WAG.
The North Wales Regional Planning Group consisting of elected Members of Anglesey, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd and Wrexham Councils and the Snowdonia National Park Authority was established to achieve these aims. It is advised by the heads of the planning services for the Authorities.
