RESIDENTS are being given another opportunity to view and provide feedback on Carmarthenshire’s Local Development Plan (LDP) - a key planning framework document to shape and guide development through to 2033.

This further consultation will provide an opportunity to those who were unable to participate in the initial consultation earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The key document shows how the county could change over the next 13 years and details land allocations for new homes and businesses, as well as policies to protect and promote the environment, the Welsh language, the economy and employment growth.

Distributing potential growth opportunities across six clusters, the plan sets the direction for the development of 8,835 new homes and 1,500 affordable homes, with a settlement pattern which reflects the diversity of Carmarthenshire’s communities and the needs of its urban and rural areas.

It also provides opportunities for around 80 hectares of land to be developed for the creation of over 5,000 new jobs.

The document provides a focus on wellbeing and on efforts to protect and enhance the county’s natural and built environments through sustainable development to ensure quality environments and places.

The plan also seeks to help address the council’s commitment to tackling climate change.

This further public consultation on the deposit revised LDP is open until October 2, 2020, giving people an opportunity to view and comment on the proposed land allocations and policies.

The deposit revised LDP and supporting documents are available to view on the council’s website,, as well as at the council’s customer service Hwbs and public libraries.
