EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Order)

This Order brings to an end the transitional arrangements made under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (Commencement No 4 and Consequential, Transitional and Savings Provisions) (Wales) Order 2005 (“the No 4 Order”) in relation to Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council (“the Council”).

Under those arrangements, each local planning authority listed in the Schedule to the No 4 Order is able to continue with the process leading ultimately to the adoption of its unitary development plan under the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, instead of having to start work on the preparation of a local development plan under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

This Order removes the Council from the list of local planning authorities in the Schedule to the No 4 Order and thus places the Council under a duty to prepare a local development plan for its area.
