Local Development Plan 2018 - 2033

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 10th 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 28th 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.

A Summary Introduction for the Revised LDP can be viewed below.
