Second Deposit LDP
How to View and Comment on the 2nd Deposit Revised LDP
The consultation on this 2nd Deposit Revised LDP is an important step in planning for the future of Carmarthenshire. It provides an important opportunity for anyone interested in how Carmarthenshire and its communities will develop and grow in the years to come, and to understand and comment on the Plan's policies and proposals.
It should be noted this document represents a second Deposit version of the Revised LDP and supersedes that version originally published on 29th January 2020. Any representations submitted in relation to the original Deposit Plan will not be considered or rolled over as part of this consultation. Consequently, any representations previously submitted should be resubmitted as part of this consultation. Previous representations will no longer be considered and will not be submitted to the Inspector for consideration at the examination in public.
The LDP, as part of the planning system, has a fundamental role in delivering sustainable development and in creating healthy, cohesive and economically viable and vibrant communities. It must help in the process of balancing and integrating conflicting objectives in order to meet current development needs, whilst safeguarding those of the future. The Plan recognises the needs of its area and seeks to contribute towards the achievement of sustainable development by setting out policies and proposals which reflect sustainability objectives. It also seeks to protect the environment by guiding and facilitating investment decisions and delivery of services and infrastructure.
It is important to note that the LDP does not 'plan for everything', and it is part of a broader set of strategies and investment programmes. However, there are aspects around the Plan which cannot dictate or control, including investments and long terms plans from other public bodies.
In using this Plan and commenting on its content, the preferred approach is through the LDP online consultation portal which can be accessed through the Revised LDP webpage. The portal is interactive and allows you to view and comment on the plan as you read it. By utilising the portal, respondents can ensure speedy access to their submission and will be able to view other representations submitted (as they are published).
Copies of this 2nd Deposit LDP together with the supporting consultation documents are available for inspection at the Council's customer service centres and at all public libraries during advertised opening hours.
A consultation response form is available on request for those unable to access the web portal.
Please submit your comments via the online portal. Alternatively, please send completed consultation representation forms to:

Forward Planning Manager, Planning Division, Environment Department, 3 Spilman Street, Carmarthen, SA31 1LE
Representations must be received by 4:30pm on the 14 April 2023. Comments submitted after this date will not be considered.
