A series of drop-in sessions have been arranged for people to comment on the county council’s approach to creating a new Local Development Plan.
The current Local Development Plan (LDP) provides local policy on development in the county and expires in December 2021 and there is a need to have a new adopted LDP in place by this date.
Over the past 12 months detailed work has taken place on developing a range of growth options which set out how much land would be required for different types of development and where that development should broadly be located.
Councillors have agreed a draft Preferred Strategy for consultation. This recommends the provision of land for 3,775 homes and 68 hectares of employment land. It is also proposed to focus new development in settlements with access to services; including a Strategic Site at Bodelwyddan.
The consultation runs until the August 30, 2019.
A series of drop-in sessions have been arranged for people to talk to officers including one on Wednesday, July 17 at Llangollen Town Hall Foyer, from 2-7pm
Councillor Mark Young, Cabinet Lead Member for Planning, Public Protection and Sustainable Communities, said: “Agreeing and adopting a Local Development Plan is a lengthy process and we have now agreed to consult on our broad approach. The public are now being given a chance to have their say.
"The responses to this consultation will be reported back to Members and the final Preferred Strategy will need to be discussed by Council in the Autumn. This will allow the Council to progress to the next stage of the LDP process, which is around creating detailed policies, proposals and specific land use allocations. This more detailed work will also be subject to further public consultation."
