This report outlines the results of research to identify regional areas for the NDF.

The School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University undertook a research project to identify regions for the NDF.

The aim was to test the appropriateness of the NDF to identify regions across Wales for the purpose of providing:

  • a context for national infrastructure, growth and projects
  • a framework for planning decisions and plan making within those regions, and to examine the potential alternatives.
