The Town and Country Planning (Power to Override Easements and Applications by Statutory Undertakers) (Wales) Order 2015

The Order confers powers on local authorities and other bodies to override easements and other rights which would otherwise restrict their use of land that has been acquired or appropriated for planning purposes. They can do this only if the use is in accordance with planning permission.

The Order also disapplies the requirement for the Welsh Ministers and the appropriate Minister to decide jointly certain planning applications and appeals where the application has been made by a statutory undertaker. The Welsh Ministers or the appropriate Minister may however direct that the requirement for joint decisions continues to apply in relation to the relevant application or appeal.
