WQ85047 (e) Tabled on 26/04/2022

Will the Welsh Government provide an update on its consideration of the extension of permitted development rights to enable pop-up campsites?

Answered by Minister for Climate Change | Answered on 03/05/2022

A broad range of stakeholders provided representations, both positive and negative, in response to the call for evidence set out in the consultation on proposed changes to permitted development rights. Inevitably there is a fine balance between providing greater flexibility to landowners to support the growing demand for staycations and protecting the amenity of local residents and the wider environment.

Consideration of these matters, in addition to the responses to the rest of the consultation, is ongoing. A government response will be issued later this year.
