Welsh Government Circulars
Circulars on planning issued by the Welsh Government and the Welsh Assembly Government.
These Welsh Government circulars (WGCs) are available below.
This circular provides contemporary guidance and references to legislation, as well as an updated list of model conditions to promote best practice in Wales.
This direction and circular guidance explains the new categories of planning application which must be referred to the Welsh Ministers, where local planning authorities are minded to approve them.
A local development order (LDO) grants permission for a type of development specified so the developer does not need to submit planning applications.
All local planning authorities across Wales have been using the standard application form (1app) to accept electronic planning applications.
