Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn - Isle of Anglesey County Council

The former planning policy framework for Anglesey

The former planning policy framework for Anglesey included the Gwynedd Structure Plan (1993) along with the Ynys Môn Local Plan (1996).

The Gwynedd Structure Plan provided the strategic guidance for development on Ynys Môn for the period 1991 to 2006. The Ynys Môn local Plan interpreted policies in the Gwynedd Structure Plan (1993) in more detail with a series of Proposals Map.

Unitary Development Plan

The Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as amended by the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994, requires each planning authority in Wales to prepare a unitary development plan (UDP) for its area.

Work began on the preparation of the Ynys Môn Unitary Development Plan, a local public inquiry was held and the Inspectors Report relating to the inquiry was received. However, at a meeting held on the 1st December 2005, the county council resolved to stop work on the Ynys Môn Unitary Development Plan (UDP) and start work on the Local Development Plan.

The Welsh Government was informed of the decision, and a request was made to authorise the transfer to the preparation of the Local Development Plan (LDP), as introduced by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

Interim Planning Policy

Here are two Interim Planning Policies that were superseded by the Joint Local Development Plan being:

  • Large Sites; and
  • Rural Clusters
