POWYS residents are being asked for their views on guidance that will be used to support the county’s newly adopted Local Development Plan (LDP).

Earlier this year the county council adopted a new LDP, the plan that sets out planning policies for the county outside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, with a commitment that it would produce three Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) policies.

The policies, which will go out for public consultation for six weeks later this month, will cover affordable housing, planning obligations and biodiversity & geodiversity

A Powys County Council spokesman said: "SPG assists in the understanding, interpretation and application of certain policies in making planning decisions and it helps ensure that those policies are better understood and applied effectively.

"It provides helpful advice for planning officers, developers and site owners alike."

Consultation starts on Wednesday, July 11 and ends at 5pm on Tuesday, August 21.
