Call for Candidate Sites 

Following publication of the Delivery Agreement, the call for Candidate Sites is the first formal stage of preparing the RLDP. Interested parties were invited to submit sites referred to as ‘Candidate Sites’ to the Council for potential allocation in the RLDP between 20/6/22 and 13/9/22. The Council will now assess each candidate site to determine its suitability.


The Candidate Site Process 


The Call for Candidate Sites is an important step in the Council’s evidence gathering process to inform future drafting of the RLDP. Site promoters were required to provide suitable evidence to robustly demonstrate the sustainability, deliverability, and financial viability of sites. The submission of detailed evidence upfront and early in the plan making process, as part of the Candidate Site stage, is essential to inform the delivery of the Preferred Strategy and subsequent plan stages.


Candidate Site submissions will be considered for potential inclusion within the RLDP and assessed in accordance with the Assessment Methodology (pdf). A Candidate Site Register containing all of the candidate sites received will be published in due course. Submission of a candidate site and its inclusion in the Candidate Sites Register must not be interpreted as the site is suitable for development or that it will be taken forward into the Deposit RLDP.
