Powys County Council adopts supplementary planning guidance
22nd October 2018
Three sets of planning guidance that will support the county's Local Development Plan have been adopted by the county council.
Earlier this year the county council adopted a new LDP, the plan that sets out planning policies for the county outside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, with a commitment that it would produce three Supplementary Planning Guidance policies.
The supplementary policies, which were the subject of public consultation during the summer, cover:
- Affordable Housing,
- Planning Obligations and
- Biodiversity & Geodiversity SPG and assist in the understanding, interpretation and application of certain policies in making planning decisions.
They are designed to ensure that those policies are better understood and applied effectively. They also provide advice for planning officers, developers and site owners, and were produced following agreement with the independent Planning Inspector who conducted last year's public examination.
