Consultation description

We are consulting on a proposal for FRAs to be statutory consultees at pre-and post-application stages of the planning process. This will mean that for certain types of development: 

  • developers will be required to consult the fire and rescue authorities prior to submitting their application 
  • local planning authorities and the Welsh Ministers will be required to consult them to inform their consideration and determination of the application.
  • the FRA will need to respond where the LPA chooses to consult further on applications for approval, consent or agreement relating to a planning application on which they were initially consulted
