The Denbighshire Local Development Plan Examination process is still underway and the inspectors have requested that a further consultation be held on potential additional housing allocations, which will run for eight weeks from September 11 until November 6, 2012.
The inspectors in their note of findings (EXAM0111Q) have indicated that currently the Denbighshire LDP is likely to under-provide for housing needs across the county by around 1,000 houses.
The council has agreed that further work can be carried out to identify additional housing sites that will make up this shortfall.
These additional housing allocations together with a draft phasing policy relating to these sites are the sole subject of this consultation. Site plans, sustainability appraisal information and draft phasing policy are available at all the council’s One Stop Shops, libraries and on the Ccuncil’s website www.denbighshire.gov.uk/ldpexam
This consultation is open to all members of the public but restricted to the additional sites in question. Letters providing information have been sent to all those who have register an interest in the LDP, all town and community councils and your elected members.
Further hearing sessions are likely to be held in January 2013, the details of which will be available on the LDP Examination website (www.denbighshire.gov.uk/ldpexam), and from the Programme Officer, in due course.
The deadline for comments is Tuesday, November 6th. Written responses should be sent to Local Development Plan Consultation, Denbighshire County Council, Caledfryn, Smithfield Road, Denbigh, LL16 3RJ, by fax: 01824 706709 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
