Local Planning Pack for Wales
To help you make the most of your voice, we've produced a set of leaflets that give you the power to influence local decisions and protect the wildlife that is important to you.
We've split the information into four key areas to help better guide you through the maze of the planning system.
What to do now
When dealing with a live planning application, you will need to be objective and decide if there is a genuine case. Wasting time on a weak element of your campaign may undermine other legitimate planning concerns.
Find out the key questions you need to ask in order to build a case for protecting wildlife through the planning system.
What to do before a case
Use your local knowledge to influence development at an early stage.
By understanding the planning system and how to respond to planning applications, you may be able to prevent a harmful development, or even enhance a proposal's value to wildlife.

How to gain local support
The more people who know what you are trying to achieve, the more support you will likely get for your campaign. Find out how to get your local media and local politicians involved.
