The Merthyr Tydfil Local Development Plan (MTLDP) provides the basis for determining planning applications.
In order to provide further information regarding some of the policies and topics within the LDP, Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) has been prepared by the Council. These documents are a material consideration used in the planning application process and you are advised to consult these documents before applying for planning permission as follows:
All Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) must prepare an LDP Annual Monitoring Report (AMR) by 31st October each year. The role of the Report is to consider whether the plan is working successfully.
Joint Housing Land Availability Study
All LPAs must prepare a Joint Housing Land Availability Study (JHLAS) annually which is an assessment of what land is available for housing.
The latest JHLAS can be viewed here.
Hard copies of the LDP, SPGs and AMR are available for purchase from the Planning Policy Team, Unit 5, Triangle Business Park, Pentrebach, Merthyr Tydfil, CF48 4TQ.
