National Development Framework for Wales
The Planning Directorate has begun work on the production of a National Development Framework (NDF). The NDF will set out a 20 year land use framework for Wales and will replace the current Wales Spatial Plan.
The NDF will:
- set out where nationally important growth and infrastructure is needed and how the planning system - nationally, regionally and locally - can deliver it
- provide direction for Strategic and Local Development Plans and support the determination of Developments of National Significance
- sit alongside Planning Policy Wales, which sets out the Welsh Government’s planning policies and will continue to provide the context for land use planning
- support national economic, transport, environmental, housing, energy and cultural strategies and ensure they can be delivered through the planning system
- be reviewed every 5 years
Our short animation sets out the planning system in Wales and the role of the NDF.
