Current plans and policies

Current Planning Policy Framework for Anglesey

The current planning policy framework for Anglesey includes the Gwynedd Structure Plan (1993) along with the Ynys Môn Local Plan (1996); together they form the ‘Development Plan’ for Anglesey.

The Gwynedd Structure Plan provides the strategic guidance for development on Ynys Môn for the period 1991 to 2006. The Ynys Môn local Plan interprets 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.

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.

Interim Planning Policy

The Council have adopted two Interim Planning Policies being:

  • Large Sites; and
  • Rural Clusters

These Interim Policies are the Council’s response to the requirement within paragraph 5.1 of Technical Advice Note (TAN 1): Joint Housing Land Availability Studies (June 2006) on local planning authorities to take steps to increase the supply of housing land when the land supply falls below 5 years. It will also allow the Council to ensure there is sufficient housing land available to take advantage of any significant employment opportunities that may arise prior to the adoption of the Joint Local Development Plan.

Adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance

Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) has been produced to support policies in the Development Plan referred to above. They give further detail on some of the policies included within the current planning policy framework (which include the Gwynedd Structure Plan (1993), Ynys Môn Local Plan (1996) and the Stopped Unitary Development Plan (2005).
