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.
