Why are we consulting

In 2021 Carmarthenshire County Council received a grant from the Community Renewal Fund to prepare Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plans for Laugharne, St Clears, Kidwelly, Llanelli, Llandeilo, Newcastle Emlyn and for four areas in Carmarthen.
Conservation Areas are distinct parts of the historic environment designated by Local Planning Authorities for their special architectural or historic interest. The management plans will help the Local Authority, building owners, planners and agents ensure proposals for change, be this to an area of public realm or a building, do not cause adverse harm to the special quality of the conservation area.
The draft documents are now available to view and we would welcome your comments on the drafts.
