Denbighshire Local Development Plan (LDP) 2018- 2033: Draft Preferred Strategy Consultation

Why are we doing this?

Denbighshire County Council approved the Draft LDP Preferred Strategy for public consultation on 14th May 2019.


The Draft LDP Preferred Strategy represents the first formal stage of producing the replacement Denbighshire Local Development Plan (LDP) and is referred to as the ‘Preferred Strategy’ stage. 


Once the final draft version of the replacement LDP has been adopted by the Council, which is expected to be in 2021, the new Denbighshire LDP will set the framework for future growth and development in the County up to 2033.


The Draft Preferred Strategy consultation sets out the key land use issues that are required to be addressed in the County. This includes the overall level of growth, where that growth will broadly be directed to, and a number of strategic policies.


What do we want to know?

We are seeking your views on whether the Draft Preferred Strategy is the right one for the County and whether all the key issues have been identified and addressed in the document.

We are also seeking your views on the Candidate Sites Register, the Candidate Sites Register contains the details of all sites that have been received and these are listed by settlement and then by the site reference.  The fact that a site has been included in the Register should not be interpreted as a commitment by the Council to take forward any submitted site into the Local Development Plan.
