Strategic Development Plan for Wales

The statutory development plan system in Wales comprises three tiers:

• Future Wales: The National Plan 2040
• Strategic Development Plan 
• Local Development Plan

A SDP recognises that planning for an individual local planning authority administrative area does not necessarily reflect how people live their lives, how markets operate or how business functions. SDPs offer the ability to ensure that a wider geographical area is considered in a single plan. It adopts a midpoint between the National Plan and LDPs and will provide a strategic context for the preparation of subsequent LDPs.The preparation of a SDP will be taken forward by a Corporate Joint Committee (CJC) comprising of Conwy CBC, Denbighshire CC, Flintshire CC, Gwynedd Council, Isle of Anglesey CC, Wrexham CBC and the Snowdonia National Park Authority.
