NRW receives around 7,000 planning consultations annually, and our performance in responding to consultations is reported to the NRW Board on a regular basis.
NRW is required to produce Annual Reports to Welsh Government which demonstrates how we have performed in providing substantive responses within prescribed deadlines. We are required to prepare and submit our first Annual Report by 1st July 2017.
In addition, NRW carries out an annual survey amongst Local Planning Authorities to gather their views on the effectiveness of our advice. The first survey was carried out in 2016 and the results of this work will be used to inform the development of our development planning advice service.
