More details

The Planning Policy Wales promotes action at all levels of the planning process which is conducive to maximising its contribution to the well‑being of Wales and its communities.
The PPW states that development plans and proposals should be prepared within the context of the key planning principles of the planning system, with the first stage; assess plans or proposals against the Strategic and Spatial Choices. Next, the detailed impact and contribution to Active & Social Places, Productive and Enterprising Places and Distinctive & Natural Places is assessed. Key factors in the assessment process include social, economic, environmental and cultural considerations.

This objection has been set out using the same four considerations; social, economic, environmental and cultural. Furthermore, consideration has been given to the ‘five ways of working’ contained in the Well-being Act involvement; collaboration; integration; prevention; and long term factors

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Decisions about whether to approve or reject planning applications are made by local authorities. This includes considering whether applications meet the requirements set out in national planning policies. Petitions to the Senedd cannot concern an issue that is the operational responsibility of a local authority and, therefore, we are not able to accept a petition on this issue.

You could consider contacting Merthyr Tydfil Council or your local representatives about this matter instead.
