Abstract: The aim of this project is to analyse the legislation regarding the development planning process and the changes that have been made on the 14th August 1997. It is also important to note the effects these changes had on the different parties involved in the process. The changes to the Planning Directorate's procedures, and the effects on planning these amendments brought with them, will also be taken into consideration. This shall be achieved by analysing the present legislation and the pre-existing legislation before 1997. This includes the Building Development Areas Act 1983, the Building Permits (Temporary Provisions) Act 1988, the Development Planning Act 1992, the Development Planning (Amendment) Act 1997 and the General Development Orders 1993 and 1997. Once the legislation has been considered, data regarding the applications received and determined shall be gathered. This information shall be analysed in order to establish whether the change in the legislation was essential to improve the Planning Authority's efficiency or not. The direct power of the Parliament over the Planning Authority increased with the Amendment Act 1997. This study shall also help to establish whether the change occurred in order to increase the existing power and the reaction of the general public to these amendments. Finally, this study shall conclude that the legislative amendments, improved the Planning Authority's efficiency and increased the direct power of the Minister responsible for planning and the Government in decision taking.
