Welsh government launches new planning applications website

The new Planning Applications Wales website has gone live as the Welsh government aims to make it quicker and easier for those making a planning application.

The website will be the portal for submitting planning applications or associated consents to local planning authorities, replacing the planning portal.

Planning application forms have also been simplified.

“Our new Planning Applications Wales website will be the place people will need to go to submit their planning applications from [30th May],” said Lesley Griffiths, cabinet secretary for energy, planning and rural affairs.

“In designing the new website, we’ve made sure the service meets the needs of Welsh users.”

The new website follows the announcement by the Welsh government that it is launching a multi-million-pound fund to support SME housebuilders.
