Local Development Plan 2018 - 2033

Page updated on: 13/02/2019

A Local Development Plan (LDP) sets out proposals and policies for the future use of all local land, and is the main development plan document in Wales. The LDP covers a period of fifteen years and should reflect national planning policy in Wales.

At our council meeting on the 10 of January 2018 we resolved to prepare a revised LDP for Carmarthenshire. The preparatory process for an LDP is expected to be completed in 3.5 years, with some of the key stages highlighted below. The timetable for the preparation of the Revised LDP is set out within the Delivery Agreement (DA) which was agreed by the Welsh Government on the 28 June 2018.

Once adopted (completed) the Revised LDP will be used as the basis for deciding on planning applications and will assist in guiding future investment programmes in areas such as infrastructure as well as Plans and strategies including those of partner organisations.

We are currently undertaking an Invitation for Gypsy and Travellers Sites within the County. The consultation period will run from 28 January 2019 - 8 April 2019 (2pm).

The consultation for the Draft Preferred Strategy and supporting documents closed at 5pm on Friday 8 February 2019.
