The Welsh Assembly Government requests that all local authorities should consider the impact of other national, regional and local plans and strategies when preparing the LDP. This is referred to in paragraph 1.16 of LDP Wales and paragraphs 4.2.2 through to 4.2.4 of the LDP manual.
This report will provide a brief overview of Conwy and its key characteristics and will then initially focus on the variety of policy issues affecting the Plan Area and indeed any cumulative effects that they may have on surrounding areas.
In order to attain an overview of relevant policy issues and their impact on the Plan Area, the report will go on to assess the impact of other development plans, guidance and strategies as requested by the Welsh Assembly Government. The individual objectives and overall vision of these strategies will be assessed in order to collate a range of interconnecting planning issues in relation to the preparation of the Local Development Plan.
The report will then provide a proposal for the overall vision of the deposit LDP together with the general objectives on which the more detailed policies can be based at a later date.
