Powys Local Development Plan (2011-2026) Schedule of Further Focussed Changes to the Deposit Draft LDP:
The changes proposed include identification of very extensive ‘Local Search Areas’ for wind and solar development right across the county across some of our most beautiful landscapes. This is contrary to the Welsh Government’s Technical Advice Note 8 (TAN8) whereby large scale energy infrastructure is allowed only within Strategic Search Areas. Welsh Government guidance on the preparation of LDPs does not support introduction of such radical new policies at this late stage of the LDP development and consultation process.
Public consultation on proposed changes to the Powys Deposit LDP runs from Monday 10th October until November 21st.
19th October Update: We have now uploaded our briefing note on the radical proposed LDP renewable energy policies. We hope this will prove useful to those who wish to object.
See Current Issues>Powys Local Development Plan for details of this important and urgent issue, grounds for objection, and how to object.
