LOCAL DEVELOPMENT ORDERS CARMARTHEN TOWN CENTRE AND AMMANFORD TOWN CENTRE pdf icon PDF 595 KB

Minutes:

The Executive Board considered a report on proposals to introduce Local Development Orders (LDO’s) for Carmarthen Town Centre and Ammanford Town Centre. The report detailed the potential role LDO’s could play as part of broader regeneration proposals within a Town Centre context, particularly in relation to Carmarthen and Ammanford in both supporting the Vibrant Places Initiative and ensuring they were resilient to the economic effects of COVID-19. The proposals also had due regard to the Council’s Corporate Recovery Plan and the Welsh Government’s Planning Guidance – ‘Building Better Places’.

 

It was noted that a LDO provided a Local Planning Authority with an opportunity to streamline the planning process by removing the need for developers/applicants to make a planning application to the Authority and for development proposals to be submitted as an LDO application, thereby allowing an authority to act proactively in response to locally specific circumstances within its geographical area.

 

Reference was made to the proposal for the inclusion of the lower part of Lammas Street Carmarthen within the Carmarthen Town Centre LDO. A view was expressed that the whole of that street should be included within the draft proposal and a recommendation to that effect be made to Council.

 

UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED TO RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL:-

 

6.1

To approve the scope of the proposed LDO’s for consideration through the democratic reporting process;

6.2

To prepare the LDO’s for the respective towns including, undertaking formal consultations as appropriate and to further report on their proposed scope, content and geographical extent;

6.3

To approve the publication of the final LDO for public consultation for a minimum of 6 weeks;

6.4

To provide officers with delegated authority to prepare evidence in support of the LDO;

6.5

To grant officers delegated authority to make minor editorial and factual amendments;

6.6

To amend the plan for the Carmarthen Town Centre LDO to include the whole of Lammas Street, Carmarthen.
