Adopted Local Development Plan

The Local Development Plan (LDP) sets out the proposals and policies for future development and use of land in Denbighshire. Our LDP was adopted in June 2013.


The Rhyl Conservation Area has been reviewed and amended since adoption of the Denbighshire LDP 2006 – 2021. The Rhyl Conservation Area is now different to that shown on the LDP proposals maps and the interactive map.

Developer Guidance Note

At present the Council is unable to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply as required by Welsh Government.

This has resulted in a number of planning applications and enquiries for housing development on sites outside development boundaries as defined in the adopted LDP.

The Council has therefore drafted a Developer Guidance Note which was approved by Planning Committee on 11th November 2015. The purpose of the Note is to provide guidance to potential applicants on providing comprehensive evidence to demonstrate that the proposed development is sustainable and is both viable and deliverable in order that it will make a genuine and early contribution to housing land supply and construction on the ground.

Housing Land Prospectus

The purpose of this document is to provide developers and investors with a list of housing development opportunities in Denbighshire. This prospectus intends to concisely summarise known development considerations for each housing site. The approach of one site per page enables all the relevant background information to be easily distributed at pre-application stage.

The Housing Prospectus lists about 60 sites available for residential development in Denbighshire. It briefly outlines site characteristics and local policies relevant to any future planning applications. We are happy to provide a full pre-application service.

The Strategic Planning & Housing team is happy to assist with any queries you may have.
