Denbighshire's cabinet members were updated on progress on the Local Development Plan at their meeting yesterday (Tuesday).
The Denbighshire Local Development Plan Examination is still under
way and a public consultation has recently closed on additional housing sites to be included in the plan.
The closing date for comments on the additional housing sites was November 6 and responses have now been fed back to cabinet.
Planning inspectors running the LDP Examination published their initial findings on housing supply in June, stating that they supported the target of 7,500 new homes in the LDP but did not believe that enough land had been provided to deliver this number before 2021.
The inspectors requested that further sites, to the equivalent of around 1,000 houses, be included in the plan.
The council has carried out additional work and has identified 21 potential additional housing sites.
The 7,500 new homes will be provided on a mixture of greenfield and brownfield sites across Denbighshire, with 67% of all new homes already built since the start of the LDP period in 2006 being on brownfield land.
A report will now be taken to full council on December 4 for its recommendation on the 21 sites.
The inspectors will then be provided with the outcome, and further hearing sessions have been pencilled in for January 2013 at Rhyl Town Hall.
