AONB Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) Note - Consultation Draft

The Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is designated as a landscape of national importance. The primary purpose of an AONB is to conserve and enhance its natural beauty.

The three Local Planning Authorities of Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham supported by the AONB Partnership have worked jointly to produce a draft Supplementary Planning Guidance Note (SPG) for the AONB.

The draft SPG seeks to provide clear and easy to understand guidance to raise awareness of the AONB and improve the quality of development and landscape design in and around the AONB. The draft SPG enables the AONB to be a key consideration from the earliest stages of designing new development. When approved by each of the Local Planning Authorities the SPG will be a material planning consideration in determining planning applications and appeals.

The draft SPG is presented for public consultation commencing on 20th November 2017 and ending on 29th January 2018. There will be two drop in sessions, where Planning Officers will be available to answer questions, at Loggerheads Country Park (A494 Ruthin Road, Loggerheads, CH7 5LH) as follows:


Wednesday 6th December 10am-2pm


Thursday 18th January 2pm-6pm
