This study provides evidence to inform the review of the planning system in Wales.

We commissioned Arup with Fortismere Associates to carry out research into the enforcement system in Wales.

They collected evidence on possible measures suggested by past reviews and in the Independent Advisory Group report: ‘Towards a Welsh Planning Act: Ensuring the Planning System Delivers’. Case studies and interviews have been used to test these measures.

They also conducted a Welsh Local Authority survey. This gave a snap shot of the way planning enforcement is being carried out in Wales now.

The research covers 18 recommendations for the future Welsh enforcement system. This includes 8 which will require new laws.
