The main purpose of our Planning Policy Service is to produce a Development Plan. A Development Plan sets out specific policies for the use of land and buildings. These policies provide a framework for local decision making and reconcile the need for development with conservation interests, to bring maximum community benefits.
The current Development Plan is the Wrexham Unitary Development Plan, which was adopted in February 2005. In future this will be replaced by the Wrexham Local Development Plan.
Including Planning Policy Wales - the national policy outlining guidance for making planning decisions
Technical advice notes (TANs) provide detailed planning advice. Local planning authorities take them into account when they are preparing development plans.
