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.
It is possible to use the Stopped unitary Development Plan (2005) as material planning consideration (which includes the inspector’s recommendations) due to the advanced stage reached in the preparation of preparing the Plan.
