Local Development Plan Candidate Site Register


Land allocations are not set out in the Preferred Strategy but will be set out in a future ‘Deposit Plan.’

In anticipation of preparing that Plan the Authority has invited anyone with an interest in land to submit sites for consideration for inclusion in the local development plan.  The Authority has also included some sites for consideration as results of studies undertaken on behalf of the Authority.    

An assessment of which sites accord or do not accord with the draft Preferred Strategy has been undertaken. 

Sites not proposed at this stage by the local planning authority could be introduced later in the plan making or examination processes if the need arises.  Now is the appropriate time to make representations on any sites identified. 

The consultation on the Candidate Sites Methodology Background Paper represented the first stage of the Candidate Sites process, which gave key stakeholders the opportunity to get involved and help shape the process.

The methodology included criteria to filter out sites that are below a certain size or are unsuitably located due to unacceptable constraints.

All of the candidate sites submitted have been included on a Register (see table below) which enables anyone to view the sites that have been submitted for consideration.

The Register below groups sites by Community Council area and includes the current assessment and conclusions reached for each site by the Authority and a map of each site. The assessment process will be ongoing.
