Abstract

The article addresses the emergent concept and practice of 'spatial planning' in the context of the formulation of the Wales Spatial Plan. Recent developments in supranational and national planning policies, processes of devolution and changes in the British governance framework provide the foundation for the research element of the article. The research itself consists of a review of the spatial content of a series of sectoral policy documents published by the National Assembly for Wales. In addressing the character and extent of spatial references across different policy sectors, emphasis is placed on the potential for spatial planning instruments to facilitate 'joined-up' policy and address complex issues of geographic distribution and spatial equity. The article concludes that a spatial planning approach, if successfully developed and enhanced, offers real value in the development of public policy.
