Carmarthenshire County Council are seeking the views of the public on areas of land listed as candidate sites for potential development.
The council issued the following press release today, Tuesday (Jan 22).
There’s a few weeks remaining for people to have their say on the future development of Carmarthenshire.
Carmarthenshire County Council is asking people to take time to see what areas of land have been submitted to them for potential future development.
A consultation is underway for people to give their feedback, but this closes on February 8.
It forms part of the preparation of the Revised Local Development Plan (LDP) for 2018 – 2033, which will be used as the basis for determining future planning applications.
Over 900 ‘candidate sites’ were submitted by landowners, developers, and members of the public – sites that applicants feel should either be developed, or protected from future development.
Each of these candidate sites are available to view on an online map, which outlines the proposed development or protection site.
People are encouraged to make a comment on the proposals, and feedback will be used to inform the preparation of the Revised LDP.
Cllr Mair Stephens, Executive Board Member with responsibility for Planning, said: “We recently invited submissions from developers, landowners and the public for sites that could be included for new development, re-development or protection in the Revised Local Development Plan for 2018 – 2033.
“It’s very important to us that people have their say – we want to ensure that everyone has a fair opportunity to see what land has been put forward, which will help us assess the sites as part of the preparation of future LDP stages.”
