Post: Pembrokeshire County Council,
All comments received in relation to this item of draft Supplementary Planning Guidance will be acknowledged, made public and reported to Pembrokeshire County Council's Cabinet. All those who comment will be advised of the outcome of those meetings.
Local Development Plans (LDPs) contain policies and proposals that provide a basis for decision-making on planning applications and for framing conditions on consented applications. The Council's LDP was adopted on 28th February 2013.
Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) sets out more detailed guidance on the way in which policies of the LDP will be applied in particular circumstances or areas.
SPG does not form a part of the Council's LDP, but it is consistent with its provisions and is cross-referenced to appropriate policies and / or proposals of the LDP.
Only LDP policies and proposals have special status (primacy) in decision-making on planning applications. However, once adopted, SPG may be taken into account as a material consideration in the determination of planning applications.
The Council has adopted the following items of SPG to support its LDP, following public consultation and consideration by Cabinet:
Cumulative Impact of Wind Turbines on Landscape and Visual Amenity. Adoption: 7 November 2022
