Submission of the LDP to the Welsh Government and Planning Inspectorate
Following the decision of Council on the 24th June 2015 (Council Minute 153), and in accordance with Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (LDP) (Wales) Regulations 2005, the Vale of Glamorgan LDP together with the necessary supporting documentation was submitted to the Welsh Government and the Planning Inspectorate for independent examination on 24th July 2015.
The submission documents comprise the Deposit LDP, the Sustainability Appraisal Report (incorporating the Environmental Report), the Community Involvement Scheme, a Consultation Report, copies of the representations and other supporting documents relating to the preparation of the LDP. The submission documents can be viewed online in the Examination Library.
Alternatively, paper copies of the submission documents can be viewed at the Council’s Civic Offices and Dock Offices in Barry, the Alps Depot in Wenvoe and at all local libraries during normal opening hours.
An independent Inspector will be appointed on behalf of the Welsh Government to conduct an examination to determine whether the LDP is sound. This is anticipated to take place later in 2015 and the Council will notify all those who made representations on the Plan of the time and place at which the Examination is to be held at least six weeks before the formal commencement of the Examination.
Public hearing sessions will then take place into the ‘soundness’ of the Plan and the Inspector will produce a report on the Plan which the Council must implement.
