Statutory Instruments with Clear Reports

 6 October 2014




CLA448  The Town and Country Planning (Determination of Procedure) (Wales) Order 2014


Procedure:  Affirmative


This Order makes provision in relation to Wales which corresponds to section 196 of and Schedule 10 to the Planning Act 2008. Section 196 made provision for the Secretary of State to determine the procedure for certain proceedings.


Article 2 amends the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 and the Planning (Hazardous Substances) Act 1990. It does so in each case so as to require the Welsh Ministers to determine the procedure by which certain proceedings under that Act should be considered.


The Explanatory Memorandum refers to three other statutory instruments.  These Regulations cannot be made until this Order has been made following the debate.  Nevertheless, the Memorandum helpfully explains the intention and the context.
