Up-to-date Local Development Plans (LDPs) are an essential part of a plan-led planning system. A full review of the adopted LDP commenced in May 2015 culminating in the production of a Review Report.
The Review Report was approved by Full Council on 20th April 2016 which recommended the preparation of a replacement LDP. The Review Report can be viewed here.
The Delivery Agreement (DA) for the preparation of the first replacement Merthyr Tydfil Local Development Plan 2016 -2031 was approved by Full Council on 13th July 2016 and agreed by the Welsh Government on 10th August 2016. The DA comprises a timetable for preparing the replacement LDP and a Community Involvement Scheme (CIS) which sets out how and when stakeholders and the community can contribute to the plan preparation process.
The Delivery Agreement can be viewed here.
Hard copies of the Review Report and Delivery Agreement are available at the Civic Centre, Castle Street and Unit 5, Triangle Business Park, Pentrebach, Merthyr Tydfil, CF48 4TQ.
The site nominations process has closed. The Council is currently preparing the candidate site register.
Work is underway for the ‘Preferred Strategy’ consultation which is due to commence in the summer of 2017.
