Welsh communities now have more opportunity than ever before to shape the future of the places where they live and work.

This website provides practical tools for planning professionals and communities, enabling local knowledge and community aspirations to be realised at the very local level of planning.

Simply, a Place Plan:

  • can be a document that sets out local level planning guidance on the use and development of land
  • links to planning policies set out by your Local Planning Authority
  • is written by local people who know the area well and can add more detail to the work done by the planners
  • can link to other local / Community Plans on a wide range of issues

Through creative collaboration with local planning authorities, local communities can develop community-led guidance to help achieve local aspirations and improve community well-being.

Use the step-step by guide to find out more about whether a Place Plan is right for your community.
