Carmarthenshire council extends period to comment on local development plan
A CONSULTATION on Carmarthenshire County Council's proposed changes to its local development plan has been extended.
It will give residents more time to make their views known.
The consultation period was originally due to run until Friday, September 13, but the council has made a cross-party decision to extend the deadline by four weeks to Friday, October 11 to allow for those on holiday.
Council leader Councillor Kevin Madge said: "The original consultation period was set in accordance with statutory guidelines and the Delivery Agreement as approved by council and subsequently by the Welsh Government.
"However since it falls within a holiday period all parties have agreed that the deadline should be extended to give everyone a better opportunity to express their views."
