Rejected petition Change the Tan 6 policy to make it applicable to indigenous Cymric communities only.

The Tan 6 policy was established by the Welsh Government in 2008 as a planning document for sustaining rural communities. There is no similar policy in England so, outsiders are taking advantage of the Welsh Government's Tan 6 policy and are pouring into Cymric communities to build houses and start co-operative ventures assisted with funding and planning permissions as outlined in the TAN 6 policy.

Cymru as a nation is in the middle of a major crises and is in great danger of losing its Cymric language and identity as properties and land are being sold and lost for ever at an astounding pace. The Tan 6 policy, as it stands, is seen to be colluding in the wholesale 'selling off' of Cymru so, we, the indigenous Cymry, want the policy revised so that it only applies to indigenous Cymric communities throughout Cymru.

Why was this petition rejected?

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

Although the Senedd has competence over planning matters and the Welsh Government has the power to amend its planning policies, a change that discriminated on grounds of ethnic or national origin would breach current legislation namely the Equality Act 2010 and the Race Relations Act 1976. This makes it unlawful to discriminate on grounds of race, colour, nationality (including citizenship), and national or ethnic origin.

As a result, it is not possible for the Senedd to take the action called for by your petition.
