Following adoption of the LDP in October 2013, the Council has a duty to ensure that the Plan remains fit for purpose and is formally reviewed every four years. A full review of the LDP is proposed, commencing October 2017.
The review process includes several preparation stages and will be informed by a number of evidence base documents and topic papers. As part of this, the Council will also prepare a Delivery Agreement (DA), including a Community Involvement Scheme (CIS), setting out how Conwy’s communities will be consulted and fully engaged in the process. At each stage the Council will also assess the social, economic and environmental impacts of the LDP through the preparation of an integrated Strategic Environmental Assessment and Sustainability Appraisal.
The Replacement Local Development Plan will be subject to an Equality Impact Assessment in line with the Equality Act 2010.
