In May 2009 the Assembly Government published a new Ministerial Interim Planning Policy Statement (01/2009) ‘Planning for Sustainable Buildings’. The MIPPS details an innovative national planning policy which sets out minimum levels of sustainability for new buildings in Wales that are part of a new planning application.

This leaflet provides a general introduction to the policy and the actions that developers and agents should take to implement the new policy.

The policy to which this leaflet refers to can be found on the right hand side.
