We call upon the
National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to
investigate how devolved planning powers could be used to bring
vacant or derelict sites of land into beneficial use".
We are especially concerned that vacant or derelict sites like the former Kwik Save site in St Mellons, Cardiff can become a blight upon communities and attract anti-social behaviour.
We wish the investigation to consider whether current powers to take action against landowners of vacant or derelict land are adequate, including the potential to compel owners to take action at their own expense to remove eyesores or derelict structures.
We call for an investigation to take place before the proposed Planning Bill is passed by the Assembly.
