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.
The Plan comprises text and maps, and together with national planning policy will guide decisions on planning applications.
Local Development Plan Proposals Map
A Constraints Map is used to show delineations which are determined by other mechanisms. The Constraints Map does not form part of adopted Local Development Plan.
An Adoption Statement has also been prepared.
