Final chance to comment on wind turbine and seascape guidance
2:41pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
THE deadline is nearing for your chance to comment on new guidance affecting planning decisions in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
The consultation period for Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) published by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority ends on Friday November 1st.
The Authority prepared three SPG documents in August: The Cumulative Impact of Wind Turbines, Seascape Character Assessment and an update to the Adopted Sustainable Design Guidance.
The wind turbine SPG outlines how the planning authority will judge the impact of turbines in the landscape where there are already others existing or planned in the area.
The seascape SPG guides developers who may be submitting applications for developments visible from the coast, and will be used by the Authority in determining such applications and when commenting on offshore proposals.
Head of Park Direction, Martina Dunne, said: “Decisions on planning applications in the National Park area are guided by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Local Development Plan (LDP), which was adopted in 2010.
“Supplementary Planning Guidance is drafted to provide more advice on the way in which policies of the LDP will be applied. This consultation offers a chance for people to have their say on these supplementary proposals before they are finalised.”
You can read the SPG documents online by logging onto www.pembrokeshirecoast.org.uk and searching for Supplementary Planning Guidance. They are also available on CD free of charge, and paper copies are available with a charge for photocopying. Contact the Authority on 0845 345 7275 or call into the head office at Llanion Park, Pembroke Dock.
You can comment on the guidance in writing to: The Park Direction Team, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, Llanion Park, Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire, SA72 6DY, or email email@example.com.
The deadline for submitting comments is 5pm on Friday November 1st 2013.
The responses will be reported back to a meeting of the National Park Authority and made public. Those who submitted comments will be advised of the outcome of the meeting.
