Official Response from the Welsh Government

The Club’s lobbying work in Wales is already being taken seriously, both by AMs and the Welsh Government. After writing to the minister for housing, Julie James, we received an official response from the government.

Dafydd Elis-Thomas, deputy minister for culture and tourism, responded to our letter enquiring about the government’s policy on listed buildings. We are gratified to discover that the Welsh government takes these issues seriously, and last year commissioned a report into planning and consent to discuss how to better administer building consent.

The Club has responded with our own feedback to the report, as well as underlining the importance of including owners in discussions about listed buildings.

For full details, see the next issue of listed heritage.
