Further Work Needed On LDP
Following an Exploratory meeting with an Inspector appointed by Welsh Government to examine its Local Development Plan, Powys County Council has confirmed that some further work is needed on the Plan which will guide the scale and location of new development in the county up until 2026.
The council has agreed to a six month extension to the deadline so that additional work can be carried out.
It has been agreed that the basis of the Plan is such that only areas of further work relating to housing viability, delivery of housing numbers and gypsy and traveller accommodation is required.
Cllr Avril York, Cabinet Member for Planning Policy, said: “The response from the Inspector suggests that the further activity will strengthen our LDP for the future.
“We welcome the inspector’s view that a great deal of good work in developing our local development plan has taken place and she has clearly recognised the volume of work that has been put into it by the council.
“The local development plan will be the most important planning document we have and we are determined to ensure we have a robust framework in place. It is a policy for the long term and it important that we get it right for the future.”
