Shropshire Council

SPD: Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site

A Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is being jointly produced by Wrexham County Borough Council, Denbighshire County Council and Shropshire Council regarding the World Heritage Site at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal.

A draft version of the SPD has recently been consulted on. You can view the draft SPD on this page.

The SPD amplifies development plan policies of the three respective Councils, and when adopted will be a material consideration in the determination of any planning application within the World Heritage Site and its buffer zones.

Due to the differences in the Welsh and English planning systems, this document will be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document for Wrexham and Denbighshire. However, for Shropshire Council this document will be used to inform the development of a Supplementary Planning Document regarding the historic environment.
