Planning (Wales) Act 2015

Schedule 3

236.This schedule inserts Schedule 4D into the TCPA 1990.

237.Schedule 4D is very similar to the existing provisions (in Schedule 6 TCPA) about the determination of appeals made to the Welsh Ministers. Certain functions in relation to an application for planning permission for development of national significance (DNS) are to be exercised by a person appointed for that purpose by the Welsh Ministers. Where such a person is so appointed, their decision is to be treated as being the decision of the Welsh Ministers. The Welsh Ministers may revoke that appointment and may either appoint another person to carry out those functions or carry out those functions themselves. The Welsh Ministers may appoint an assessor to assist the person holding a hearing or local inquiry into an application made directly to the Welsh Ministers.
