What steps is the Welsh Government taking to unlock potential new developments that have become stalled due to rules concerning phosphate pollution?
Solutions to phosphate issues will vary depending on the development type and the specific location of the proposed development. The Welsh Government is seeking a collaborative framework that brings together the necessary stakeholders to deliver local solutions to the specific problems encountered by individual developments. This is supported by a national planning sub-group to ensure necessary national guidance is put in place by Natural Resources Wales to ensure consistency where appropriate. The Welsh Government chairs an oversight group to co-ordinate actions between the different sectors involved such as agriculture and planning.
