There are grants available for Local Authorities to procure consultancy support to help determine planning applications for renewable energy and waste facilities.

In June, we published our response to the GVA Grimley report on the Planning Application process in Wales. You can find this on the right hand side of this page.

In our response, we agreed to write to Chief Planning Officers explaining what technical and specialist consultancy support would be made available to help them with planning applications in the waste and renewable energy sectors. Both of these sectors have been identified as national priorities.

A pilot grant scheme will run until 31 March 2011.

This letter and supporting guidance sets out the framework and conditions for Local Planning Authorities that wish to apply for grant funding.
