Pre-Application Consultation (PAC)
Legislative changes introduced now require developers to carry out pre-application consultation (or PAC) on planning applications for major developments in Wales. Consulting with statutory consultees and the community early in the planning application process can shape a planning application and reduce the risk of objections later.
Every development can benefit from effective engagement with the community and consultees. Cadnant can add value to your community engagement, helping you build trust with the community which reduces the risk of potential reputational damage if not done properly. Cadnant’s team of Welsh speakers are well placed to ensure that the views of the Welsh-speaking communities of Wales are heard through their preferred language of communication. We have extensive experience of undertaking pre-application consultations for major developments in Wales to ensure that developers comply with the legislation.
