Reflections on the journey so far …. and a view of the journey ahead

Since the first Wales Planning Conference in 2008, planning in Wales has been on a significant journey. We have had the first Planning Act in Wales and the Wales Act 2017 has also received Royal Assent, devolving further powers to Welsh Ministers. The Conference will look back at this journey and also consider further changes, including the Law Commission’s work for a second Planning Act.
