Draft Local Development Order (Llanelli Town Centre)
The consultation period for the Draft Local Development Order (LDO) ran from December 18 2017 to February 9 2018. The Consultation period is now closed.
The Council has established a ‘Task Force’ with a view to overseeing the regeneration of Llanelli town centre. A key issue that the Task Force has been seeking to address is the number of vacant retail units in the town centre. The potential contribution that a shift in planning policy could make to facilitating investment and helping in incentivising development is noted.
Further to the above, the LDO acknowledges a shifting role for the town centre to that of a destination and living environment as well as a retail centre. It seeks to introduce a permissive planning regime that would allow specified changes of use to take place without the applicant having to apply for planning permission.
