Local Development Plan consultation closes

Many thanks to those of you who dropped by to see us at our Local Development Plan (LDP) drop in sessions in Llangollen, Ruthin and Rhyl.

The LDP draft Preferred Strategy consultation is now underway. The new LDP will replace the existing one once adopted (anticipated 2021) and will cover the period 2018 – 2033.

The draft Preferred Strategy is the first major stage in the preparation process and sets out the overall proposed growth levels for employment land and housing, along with a broad sense of where growth will be directed. There are no specific land allocations or detailed policies at this stage. The more detailed work will be consulted upon in 2020.

The candidate sites register that accompanies the main consultation documents shows land that has been submitted by landowners for consideration in the new LDP. At this stage none of these sites are indicated for inclusion in the LDP by the Council but comments and any local knowledge are welcomed on them.

All of the consultation documents are available in libraries and one-stop shops as well as online via the Council's website.

Anyone can send comments in, up to Friday 30th August. You can do this via the consultation portal, e-mail or comments form.  The Local Development Plan team are available to answer any questions during normal office hours.  You can e-mail them at or phone on 01824 706916.

All comments received will be reported back to Council along with proposed changes to the draft Preferred Strategy by the end of 2019.

More information can be found on our website.
