    Local Development Plan - Supplementary Planning Guidance


Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) is additional advice, provided by the Council, on a particular topic or policy areas, and related to and expanding upon statutory policies, for example, guidance on the design of roof extensions in a specific locality.


Following adoption of the LDP, the Council is currently reviewing and updating each SPG.


Closed Consultations.

Consultation on the following documents has now closed:



Developer Guidance Note

At present the Council is unable to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply as required by Welsh Government. This has resulted in a number of planning applications and enquiries for housing development on sites outside development boundaries as defined in the adopted LDP. The Council has therefore drafted a Developer Guidance Note  which was approved by Planning Committee on 11th November 2015. The purpose of the Note is to provide guidance to potential applicants on providing comprehensive evidence to demonstrate that the proposed development is sustainable and is both viable and deliverable in order that it will make a genuine and early contribution to housing land supply and construction on the ground.
