Update on Carpenters Estate planning application

A formal request for information under Regulation 25 of the Town and Country (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017 (as amended) was issued by the planning authority (LLDC) on 3 November 2023. This identified a number of aspects of the proposed development where the LLDC considers that further information would be required in order for the EIA to be considered as an EIA under the EIA Regulations.
