Improving the planning process for everyone’s benefit is the subject of this event. The process could be simpler, less-costly, more transparent and more encouraging for those with sound projects which boost the community with jobs, revenue and more/better facilities. It could equally be improved for those who wish to engage with an application.
This event will feature our own Head of Planning, Fenella Collins who comes with extensive experience and expertise in the area. Joining her will be equally expert members who have negotiated the process for residential and commercial projects including amenities and tourist sites: Rhys Davies from Cadnant Planning – a North Wales business also active elsewhere in Wales, and Lloyd James, Owen and Owen, whose Pembrokeshire based business regularly deals with developments, diversification and tourism. Adrian Lort-Phillips, Lawrenny Estates will also join us. The Lawrenny Development has been named an "exemplar of rural development in Wales" by the Design Commission for Wales. Adrian will share the family's journey in bringing to fruition the family dream of a rural community that is an environment that people are able to live in, work from, and which is an attraction for visitors to the Pembrokeshire countryside.
This should make for a dynamic and fascinating event in which we will discuss and refine our CLA Cymru recommendations to Welsh Government on the subject.
Nigel Hollettt, CLA Cymru Director will host the webinar.
