Independent advisory group
The Group’s findings will help provide the evidence base for the proposed Planning Bill for Wales.
The group, chaired by former Welsh Director of the Planning Inspectorate John Davies MBE, is made up of representatives covering a wide variety of planning backgrounds, including environmental organisations, the construction industry, local government and planning law.
- John Davies MBE (Chair)
- Jane Carpenter, CBI (Redrow Homes)
- Andrew Farrow, Flintshire County Council
- Chris Sutton, CBI (Jones Lang LaSalle)
- Lucy Taylor, Planning Aid Wales (Newport City Council)
- Mike Webb, RSPB
- Huw Williams, Law Society (Geldards LLP)
The Independent Advisory Group will:
- Identify the key policy objectives that the planning system is required to deliver now and in the future;
- Assess existing institutional delivery arrangements, noting areas of good practice and areas in need of improvement; and
- Propose options for the future delivery of the planning system, including plan making and development management services.
The Group has issued a Call for evidence (see Related Links on the right) and will deliver its report during summer 2012. After considering the recommendations the Welsh Government intends to publish a White Paper in 2013.
