Replacement Local Development Plan

Local Development Plans (LDPs) need to be reviewed at least every four years to make sure they are up to date.


We reviewed our LDP in June 2021 and published an LDP Review Report. The report recommended an RLDP be prepared for the period 2021 to 2036. We also published an RLDP Delivery Agreement which sets out the processes, resources and timescales involved in preparing the RLDP. You can view these documents online, or view a hard copy at the Civic Offices or libraries managed by the Vale of Glamorgan.


We are now working on the RLDP which will help shape the Vale of Glamorgan for the next 15 years. It will help us decide what developments will and will not be permitted at different locations, and highlight areas that we need to protect.


Welsh Government have published a community guide to development plans. This guide covers the development plan system, how plans are prepared, and how you can engage in the process.
