The Welsh Government's Planning Division is responsible for administering the Wales Planning Policy Development Programme and ensuring that any research or policy implementation work meets the priorities and needs of the Welsh Government.
The programme was originally established in 2000 under the title the Wales Planning Research Programme. The key aims were identified in the Land Use Scoping Study (2000) and are still relevant today. They are:
- to focus on distinctive Welsh issues;
- to support the development of planning policy;
- to provide management information for land use planning policy development; and
- to develop best practice guidance.
In 2005 a quinquennial review of the research programme was undertaken, this work was completed in 2006 and is available to download. This report identified a number of recommendations, including the renaming and restructuring of the programme to facilitate not only the funding of planning research but also the implementation and evaluation of policy resulting from it.
Research is carried out predominantly by external commission, although some projects are undertaken collaboratively with other organisations.
