This study provides evidence and recommendations to inform the preparation of a new economic development Technical Advice Note (TAN).

Planning Policy Wales (PPW) was updated in November 2012 to bring it into line with our economic renewal policies. This ensures the planning system supports economic growth. We have recognised the need to support PPW with a TAN on economic development.

We commissioned Peter Brett Associates to conduct the study to help inform this new economic development TAN. The study identifies the main issues on which local planning authorities need technical guidance and advises on the content of that guidance.
