Rural housing

An interesting consultation was today issued by Minister Jane Davidson regarding several elements of housing policy for rural Wales. It has both a political and professional interest and is certain to get a number of lobby groups hot under the collar.
Not yet policy, but following consultation changes to national policy are proposed. Some worthy principles around succession planning in farming, affordable homes etc. It will be interesting to see how 'planning' copes with the consequences of what I feel is potentially a significant shift in policy, with the outcome largely in the hands of Wales planning authorities, not the Minister.
Ponderosa a go-go or sensible planned reaction. We`wait to see !
