Retaining the positive changes driven by the coronavirus pandemic has been made central to the Welsh Government’s new planning policy.
Boosting digital services in areas where current provision is poor and making sure communities engage in home working will lead to reduced traffic and cleaner air
Minister for Housing and Local Government Julie James said: “The COVID-19 pandemic and our collective response to the issues it raises, is one of the most complicated challenges in a generation. We have all had to do things differently – whether that’s working from home, taking part in online school lessons or keeping in touch with friends and family online.
“As we emerge from this crisis, we must ensure we retain the best elements of the changes that have occurred around us. In this recovery period, we must continue to strive for quality in our built environments. We cannot let these standards drop or go for short-term economic gains over longer term well-being objectives.
“This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for us to reset the clock and think again about the places in which we want to live, work and play. We need to rebuild a society that respects our environment, whilst giving people good places to live and which are accessible on foot, bike and public transport.
“This document sets out our vision for achieving this and pinpoints the most relevant policy priorities and actions to aid in the recovery. We cannot, however, do this alone. We need to work together with the development industry, local planning authorities, public bodies and the third sector to grasp this opportunity to deliver high-quality development in the right place.”
