Planning Policy Wales
This is our land use planning policy for Wales and should be taken into account when preparing development plans.

This guidance is supplemented by a series of Technical Advice Notes (TANs) and Minerals Technical Advice Notes (MTANs). We give procedural guidance in circulars.

The Welsh Ministers and Planning Inspectors will consider these guidance documents when deciding on called-in planning applications and appeals.

Planning Policy Wales (PPW) has been reworked into policy themes around the well-being goals, with policies updated to reflect new Welsh Government strategies.
