Local Development Plan 2

Following the adoption of the Local Development Plan (LDP), the Authority has a statutory obligation to keep all matters under review that are expected to affect the development of its area

The Local Development Plan (LDP) provides the legal framework for the development and use of land within the National Park. It also provides the context for determining local planning applications. As the local planning authority, we are responsible for preparing and updating the Local Development Plan. This process includes several stages of preparation, consultation and engagement with the public and other interested parties.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Local Development Plan was adopted in September 2010. Following adoption, the Authority has a duty to ensure that the Local Development Plan remains fit for purpose.  The Local Development Plan monitoring and review section proposes a full review of the Plan at the end of the financial year 2014-2015.   The outcome of that review is that a replacement Plan is required.
