The present Unitary Development Plan will be superseded by a Local Development Plan (LDP) which will establish the potential areas for housing, employment and recreation. Carrog is identified within the County as a Rural Community and as such has always had a development boundary (the UDP).

The County Council identified key issues in sustaining rural communities such as ours.

These are:
• The need to sustain villages as thriving and dynamic communities;
• The important role as social centres of schools, shops, post offices, church and chapel;
• The need to provide people with the opportunity to buy a home or get a job in these communities.

There has been very little development in Carrog and Llidiart y Parc in the last 30 years or so following the construction of Maes y Llan, with only three new houses built since this time. Carrog has become a very popular place to live with consequently some of the highest house prices in the area. This makes it difficult for people to move from their first home to larger properties with the consequent result that housing stock is not available to first time buyers who would in any case struggle with prices.

The Community and County Councils have already identified several areas of the village for potential housing development and if anybody would like to see the proposed plan or propose the inclusion of other land, they should contact the County Environment Directorate (Planning) Trem Clwyd, Ruthin.
