Consultation on Welsh language and the planning system

New legislation to ensure that the potential impact on the Welsh language is considered in the planning process came into force on Monday 4 January, 2016.

It is now a requirement that every planning authority when preparing or revising local development plans gives consideration to how the policies are likely to impact on the use of Welsh language in their area.

The Welsh Government is seeking the views of local planning authorities, developers and other interested stakeholders on whether the amended Technical Advice Note (TAN) 20 makes this clear.

Please send your comments to planconsultation-d@wales.gsi.gov.uk by 30 March, 2016. You can find the consultation documents on the Welsh Government website.
