Note on the Implementation of Pt 1 in Wales


The implementation of the Pt 1 provisions in Wales is under the control of the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG). It was originally proposed that the Welsh registers should be fully digitised as part of a process that was intended to create a single national dataset prior to the commencement of Pt 1 in 2010. These proposals now seem to have been abandoned; and, to date, little has been done to implement Part 1 in Wales. For further information, and any updates, see the WAG Website common land pages.
