Draft Local Development Order (LDO) – Llanelli Town Centre

Title: Draft Local Development Order (LDO) – Llanelli Town Centre

Council section(s): Environment

Consultation Period: 18 DEC 2017 0:00am to 09 FEB 2018 12pm.


Residents, businesses, visitors, statutory consultees and any interested parties.


Llanelli Town Centre

Why are we consulting?

The Council has established a ‘Task Force’ with a view to overseeing the regeneration of Llanelli town centre. A key issue that the Task Force has been seeking to address is the number of vacant retail units and the diversity of uses within the town centre, including on upper floors.  In this respect consideration has been given to the role and contribution of planning policy in tackling such issues and in facilitating investment and helping in incentivising development. 

Further to the above, the LDO acknowledges a shifting role for the town centre to that of a destination and living environment as well as a retail centre. It seeks to introduce a permissive planning regime that would allow specified changes of use to take place without the applicant having to apply for planning permission.
