What do we do?

Gwynedd and Anglesey Joint Planning Policy Unit

In 2010 the decision was made to merge the Gwynedd Council Planning Policy Unit and the Isle of Anglesey County Council Planning Policy Unit. The Unit was formally set up in May 2011.

All planning policy enquiries relating to the Isle of Anglesey or Gwynedd Local Planning Authority area should therefore be directed to the Joint Planning Policy Unit. 

The Joint Planning Policy Unit is responsible for producing land use planning policies and guidance that are used in deciding planning applications and therefore guide future development in the area. The policies and guidance include:

The current adopted Development Plan for the Gwynedd Local Planning Authority Area is the Anglesey and Gwynedd Joint Local Development Plan which was adopted on 31 July 2017. The Joint Local Development Plan supersedes the Gwynedd Unitary Development Plan (UDP).
