The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 requires the Authority to monitor and review its Local Development Plan (LDP). Up-to-date LDPs are an essential part of the plan-led planning system under national policy set out by Welsh Government.
Following the preparation of a Review Report on the existing Adopted LDP, and approval of a Delivery Agreement with Welsh Government, the Authority commenced work on its First Replacement Local Development Plan.
Once adopted, the new LDP will replace the existing adopted LDP (which runs until 2021) and will be used to guide future growth and to help make planning decisions.
