Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan (LDP)
Your Vale - Your Future
The Vale of Glamorgan Council is preparing a new Local Development Plan (LDP), which will set out how land within the Vale of Glamorgan is used between 2011 and 2026.
Deposit Plan : Public Consultation
8th November to 5pm 20th December 2013
Following the decision of Council on 23rd October 2013, the Vale of Glamorgan Deposit Local Development Plan 2011 - 2026 and associated documents is open to public consultation. The public consultation period commenced on Friday 8th November 2013 and runs for 6 weeks, ending at 5pm on Friday 20th December 2013.
What is the Local Development Plan?
The Vale of Glamorgan Deposit Local Development Plan 2011 - 2026 has now been prepared and is based on the information gathered at previous stages of the LDP process and has regard to the responses to the Draft Preferred Strategy consultation in January / February 2008.
The Plan sets out the vision, objectives, strategy and policies for managing development in the Vale of Glamorgan, and contains a number of local planning policies and makes provision for the use of land for the purposes of housing, employment, retailing, recreation, transport, tourism, minerals, waste, and community uses. It also seeks to identify the infrastructure that will be required to meet the growth anticipated in the Vale of Glamorgan up to 2026, and provides a monitoring framework for assessing the effectiveness of the Plan.
The Deposit LDP is accompanied by a Proposals Map (PDF) and a Constraints Map (PDF).
You can also use an Interactive Proposals Map to view the proposals.
The Council has produced a Delivery Agreement, which sets out the timetable for the preparation of the Plan together with a Community Involvement Scheme that describes how and when stakeholders, including the general public, can get involved.
The Council is required to keep the LDP timetable under regular review and in January 2013 sought agreement from the Welsh Government (WG) to amend it. The amended LDP timetable was agreed by WG on the 28th June 2013 and has been incorporated into the Delivery Agreement (Revised June 2013).
Paper copies of the Delivery Agreement (Revised June 2013) have also been placed at various deposit locations across the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Welsh Government has also published a document entitled Planning Your Community (July 2006) which seeks to encourage community involvement in the new Local Development Plan process in Wales.
