Jones heralds progression of Welsh system

The planning system in Wales has made "substantial progress" since proposed reforms were announced a year ago, according to the assembly government's environment minister Carwyn Jones.

In a cabinet statement delivered this week, Jones claimed that the inclusion of Wales-only clauses in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill and the commitment of an extra £1 million a year for planning authorities from the assembly demonstrate how far the system has come in the past 12 months.

"It's a year since Planning: Delivering for Wales was launched and the system is changing for the better," said Jones. "To help authorities improve services, £1 million has been allocated this year and we will make resources available for support in each of the next two financial years."
