REPLACEMENT MERTHYR TYDFIL LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2016-2031: NOTICE OF CONSULTATION ON SUPPLEMENTARY PLANNING GUIDANCE NOTES
Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council (MTCBC) adopted the Replacement Local Development Plan (LDP) in January 2020. The Replacement LDP provides an up-to-date planning policy framework that will be used to guide development in the County Borough up to 2031. As part of the LDP process, it was recognised that certain policy areas would benefit from further guidance to clarify how specific LDP policies will be put into practice.
The Planning Policy section has produced four Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) Notes that are now subject to a six week period of public consultation:
- SPG Note 1: Affordable Housing;
- SPG Note 2: Planning Obligations;
- SPG Note 3: Archaeology and Archaeologically Sensitive Areas;
- SPG Note 4: A Design Guide for Householder Development.
Ordinarily, hard copies of the documents would be available for inspection at the Civic Centre, Unit 5 and the Council’s libraries. However, given the current situation with regard to COVID-19, Council buildings currently remain closed to the public. In order to mitigate this issue, the Planning Policy Section will hold specific digital engagement sessions on each SPG note, where stakeholders have expressed an interest in engaging with the Council. If you wish to participate in any of these sessions, please contact the Planning Policy team using the contact details below.
Comments on the SPG notes must be made in writing and received by the Council by midnight Thursday 10th December 2020. Comments may be sent electronically to email@example.com or posted to: Chief Officer Planning and Neighbourhood Services, Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council, Unit 5, Triangle Business Park, Pentrebach, Merthyr Tydfil, CF48 4TQ.
If you have any queries about how to submit your comments, or any other questions, please e-mail the Planning Policy Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01685 726277 and ask to speak to a member of the Planning Policy Team.
