How do the UDP, LDP and Management relate to each other?
The National Park Management Plan is the key strategic document for the National Park
The Development Plan's aims, vision and objectives, are informed by those set out in the Management Plan.
National Policy Context. In preparing a development plan, local planning authorities must also take into account national planning policy, comprising :-
Planning Policy Wales (PPW) 2002, Minerals Planning Policy Wales, supplementary Technical Advice Notes (TAN's) and Minerals Technical Advice Notes (MTAN's), Circular Letters and Ministerial Interim Planning Policy Statements (MIPPS)
together with other national, regional and local strategies and plans.
The current Development Plan for the National Park is the Authority Approved Unitary Development Plan (UDP).
Emerging Local Development Plans (LDPs)
Under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (external link), the requirement to produce a development plan has changed from a Unitary Development Plan to a Local Development Plan (LDP). Once adopted, the LDP is intended to replace the UDP.
All planning and strategic documents are prepared in consultation with the public and interested groups and organisations.
