The Council produces supplementary planning guidance (SPG) to provide further detail on certain policies and proposals contained within the Carmarthenshire Unitary Development Plan (UDP). They help ensure certain policies and proposals are better understood and applied more effectively.
SPG can be produced in the form of:
l Guidance on a particular topic
l Design guides or
l Area development briefs
It should be noted that whilst SPG do not have the same status as adopted development plan policies, however, the
Government advises that they may be taken into account as a material consideration in determining planning applications.
The following SPG have been prepared in relation to the UDP. Reference should be had to Local Development Plan (LDP) pages in relation to those being prepared in respect of the emerging LDP.
