Planning Handbook a Guide for Local Authority Members

Councillors are central to the planning system, whether as a member of the Planning Committee taking key decisions on planning applications or as a ward member representing the expectations of the public. This guide will help all councillors to understand the planning system and the critical role it plays in the design, conservation and development of the built environment and landscapes of Wales.
