Supplementary Planning Guidance

The Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan (LDP) was adopted on 28 June 2017. It sets out the policies for managing ddevelopment in the Vale of Glamorgan and is the basis for decisions for land use planning. We are currently consulting on a number of draft Supplementary Planning Guidance documents (SPGs) that will supplement the policies contained in the LDP. This consultation will run from Monday 22 January until Friday 02 March 2018.
