(last updated 17th April 2018)

Following the conclusion of the Examination in Public of the Powys LDP and the receipt of the Inspector’s Report, the Council adopted the LDP on the 17th April 2018 and it became operative immediately.

Copies of the adopted LDP, the Adoption Statement and all other accompanying documents including the Inspector’s Report can be found here.

Copies of the adopted LDP and Adoption Statement have been placed in the four main Council offices and in all Powys public libraries. The Environmental Report has been placed in the four main Council offices.

The adopted LDP replaces the former Powys Unitary Development Plan, 2010.

A six week period commenced on the 17th April to allow possible challenges to be made to the validity of the LDP in accordance with Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. Please refer to the Adoption Statement for further information.

LDP Customer Satisfaction Survey – How did we do?

Effective public and stakeholder involvement is vital to the production of a sound LDP which sets out a clear strategy for meeting the future needs of the county’s communities.

Following the recent adoption of the LDP we consider this is an appropriate time to reflect upon and evaluate the Council’s performance and the consultation processes used during the preparation of the Plan. To help us do this we invite you to participate in our online survey to express any opinions or suggestions you may have with regard to this and what form public engagement and consultation might take in the future.

We would be grateful if you would take the time to complete the survey which can be found here. Your opinions and feedback are important to us and will be used to review our public participation and consultation practices in the future.

The survey closes on Sunday 17th June 2018.

Please note that this is not an opportunity to make comments on the content of the Plan as this has already been considered by an independent Inspector at public examination.

Thank you for your participation.
