Have your say on new guide to planning sustainable development in Welsh National Parks.
Don’t miss your chance to comment on new guidance drawn up to help planning applicants in Wales’ three National Parks.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, along with Wales’ two other National Park Authorities in Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia, has prepared Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) on Enabling Sustainable Development in Welsh National Parks.
The consultation period for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park closes on Friday 30 January.
The SPG does not introduce any new planning policy; it provides an explanation of existing national and local planning policy, to help applicants find the relevant information and understand the planning system for National Parks in Wales.
Martina Dunne, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Head of Park Direction, said: “This SPG is intended to make the process clearer for planning applicants, to help them avoid common pitfalls and to put together development proposals which should be acceptable in principle.
“So it outlines what types of developments are likely to be allowed where in the National Park. It also sets out how your development can meet the Authority’s statutory purposes and explains the main factors that Park Authorities must consider when deciding applications.”
You can read the draft document, Supplementary Planning Guidance – Enabling Sustainable Development in Welsh National Parks, on the Authority’s website at www.pembrokeshirecoast.org.uk.
To comment on the draft guidance email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Park Direction Team, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, Llanion Park, Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire, SA72 6DY.
The closing date for responses is 12 noon, Friday, 30 January 2015. All comments will be acknowledged and made public. All comments will be reported to the National Park Authority and everyone who comments will be advised of the outcome, which will be determined at a subsequent meeting of the Authority.
