The creation of the National Assembly for Wales provides a new political context and places an emphasis on the delivery of planning policy that is distinctive and directly relevant to the needs of Wales. In response to the creation of the Assembly, a range of strategic documents have been issued and initiatives underway by both the National Assembly and other bodies with an all-Wales remit. Within this context, DTZ Pieda Consulting was appointed to prepare a Scoping Study to provide a research/information base to inform the development of a distinctive land use planning policy framework.
