Rural Enterprise Dwelling Monitoring Returns
The Rural Enterprise Dwelling Monitoring process collects data from each Welsh local authority. It does this to monitor how many rural enterprise dwelling planning applications are consented and refused over a financial year.
Please refer to Technical Advice Note 6 Planning for Sustainable Rural Communities for a definition of Rural Enterprise Dwellings.
Please note in 2013 we made an amendment to the way the data is presented. In the previous two years applications to remove occupancy conditions were included not only in columns 7 and 8 (applications to lift occupancy conditions, granted and refused) but also in columns 2 and 3 (applications granted and refused). It was felt that this could cause misinterpretation of the results. Columns 2 and 3 now relate exclusively to applications for new rural enterprise dwellings.
This year (2014) we also asked local planning authorities to include details of applications granted for One Planet Developments. According to the local planning authorities who responded, none determined any applications for One Planet Developments between April 2013 and March 2014.
