Planning (Wales) Act 2015

Section 34 – Notification of development

130.This section inserts section 71ZB into the TCPA 1990.

131.Section 71ZB places a requirement on developers to notify the local planning authority of the date on which the development is to begin, the details of the planning permission to be implemented and any other matters specified in a development order. The new provision requires a developer to display on or near the development site a notice of the decision to grant planning permission for that development. The notice must be displayed throughout the development period.

132.It also enables the Welsh Ministers by a development order to specify the categories of planning permission to which the requirement applies (for example, developments of national significance and major development); the form and content of such notices; and how a copy of the grant of planning permission must be displayed.

133.It requires, where relevant, decision notices to set out the duties to be undertaken by the developer in relation to giving and displaying notices. Planning permission is to be granted subject to the deemed condition that these requirements must be complied with.
