Call for Candidate Sites


As part of the evidence gathering for the revised Plan, the Authority is inviting people to submit details of sites they wish to be considered, for inclusion as sites for development or protection in the emerging Local Development Plan. The sites are referred to as ‘Candidate Sites’.

A form will need to be completed for each Candidate Site submission (one site per form). Submissions can be made electronically to or in paper format to the Park Direction Service, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, Llanion, Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire, SA72 6DY.

Please note that a separate form MUST be completed for each site to be submitted. It is important to provide as much information as possible on the forms. Whilst the Authority will consider the acceptability of each site for development, it will also be very important for the proposer to demonstrate how they intend to bring the site forward for development during the Plan period. Delivery of allocated sites will be scrutinised through the Local Development Plan Examination process and the proposer may be asked for further evidence to show when and how this will be achieved.

To assist with completion of the forms, Guidance Notes have been prepared which provide details of where further information can be sought.

The sites will be assessed using the methodology set out in a Candidate Sites Methodology Background Paper to the Local Development Plan.

Please note that if your site is already allocated in the current Local Development Plan but has not been developed to date you will need to resubmit your site as a Candidate Site now if you wish it to be considered for inclusion in the replacement Local Development Plan.

All sites will be entered onto a Candidate Sites Register which will be published alongside the Preferred Strategy of the Replacement Local Development Plan which is scheduled for April/May 2017. The Register will detail the site assessment and whether it is suitable for allocation in the revised Plan.

Your site(s) must be submitted by 4.30pm on Friday 25 November 2016. Submissions cannot be kept confidential and will be made public.
