Local Development Plan (LDP) 


Carmarthenshire Local Development Plan – Adopted December 2014

On the 10 December 2014 the Council resolved to formally adopt the 'Carmarthenshire Local Development Plan' (LDP) which now supersedes the previous adopted Unitary Development Plan.

A composite of the adopted LDP, together with associated Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment documents are available to view below.  It should be noted that the ‘final’ version of the adopted LDP will be published once available.

The LDP presents a spatial vision for the future of the County and a framework for the distribution and delivery of growth and development. It sets out the land-use planning policies and proposals for Carmarthenshire (excluding that area contained within the Brecon Beacons National Park) which are used in the determination of planning applications. These policies and proposals include land-use allocations for different types of development (i.e. housing, employment, retail, regeneration, recreation/open space etc.) as well as criteria for assessing individual proposals.  The Plan can potentially have a direct effect on the lives of every resident of the County as well as major implications on investment programmes, other plans and strategies, communities and landowners alike.

The LDP, will guide development in the County up to 2021, and will be reviewed in accordance with monitoring requirements.
