Following a decision at a meeting of Powys County Council’s Cabinet on 15th December 2015, the Council has submitted its Local Development Plan (LDP) to the Welsh Government for Examination under section 64(1) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
The Examination of the LDP will be carried out by an Independent Inspector who will be appointed to determine whether the Plan is fundamentally ‘sound’. The Inspector will assess the soundness of the LDP as a whole rather than simply consider individual objections, and will base judgement on the evidence available, the representations made and the particular circumstances of the LDP and the area.

Appendix 5b collates all the representations received in relation to Policy RE1 / FFC79. Given the volume of representations received, the Council has not responded individually to each representation; instead the Council has responded to the issues raised. The Council’s responses on these issues can be read in the Updated Consultation Report January 2017. For ease of reference, the responses have been consolidated in the following Addendum 5b.
* A number of representations contained supporting documents or material that could not be presented electronically. These are identified in Appendix 5a and 5b. The Inspector has agreed to some being saved as Examination Documents (eg ED033 and ED034). If you would like to see all of a particular representation please contact the LDP team via firstname.lastname@example.org or the Programme Officer. All these documents are available in the paper Examination Library at the Gwalia, Llandrindod Wells, and all submitted documents have been forwarded in full to the Planning Inspector.
