Housing development proposals outside of Local Development Plan (LDP) development boundaries.

At present, the Council is unable to demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply as required by Welsh Government. This has resulted in a number of planning applications and enquiries for housing development on sites outside development boundaries as defined in the adopted LDP.

The Council has therefore drafted a Developer Guidance Note which was approved by Planning Committee on 11th November 2015.

The purpose of the Note is to provide guidance to potential applicants on providing comprehensive evidence to demonstrate that the proposed development is sustainable and is both viable and deliverable in order that it will make a genuine and early contribution to housing land supply and construction on the ground.
