The planning services at all three Welsh National Parks are performing well when it comes to having clear policies for developing and using land. Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia National Park Authorities are also making good use of limited staff resources to improve the built heritage of their areas - which includes local archaeology, listed buildings and conservation areas.
But, the Auditor General for Wales has found that all three Parks have made limited progress in improving the speed of processing planning applications - and their performance in this area does not compare well with other Welsh planning authorities.
