The Powys Local Development Plan is still heading towards the finish line. The Inspector, Nicola Gulley, has decided that a further public Hearing Session is needed to look again at renewable energy policy.
The hearing is on 10th January 2018 and will begin at 10.00 a.m. The venue is the Media Resource Centre (MRC Wales Ltd.), Oxford Road, Llandrindod Wells, Powys LD1 6AH. Media Centre map.
The agenda for the session can be found on the LDP Examination website.
Representations to the Matters Arising Changes public consultation can be found on this link and hearing session statements by the participants will be uploaded to the hearing website sometime after the 15th December.
CPRW Brecon & Radnor Branch and CPRW Montgomeryshire will be participants in the hearing session with the legal support of planning barrister Tina Douglass.
Also participating are several representatives of the renewables industry.
Please put 10th January 2018 in your diaries and please do come along to the hearing session if you possibly can. Unless you are already registered as a participant, you may only spectate but a big public turnout to the Hearing Session would demonstrate to the Inspector the continuing degree of public concern about this area of planning policy. This may well be the last opportunity for any public involvement in the LDP.

In the meantime wishing you all a very happy, and warm, Christmas,
CPRW Brecon & Radnor Committee
