Council extends consultation period for local development plan

THE Vale of Glamorgan Council has extended the consultation period for the first stage of its new Local Development Plan (LDP). The LDP must be regularly reviewed to ensure that it is kept up to date.

The Council is currently drafting a new Review Report, looking into the effectiveness of the current plan and confirming the next steps of revision.

A Delivery Agreement is also being drafted which contains a Community Involvement Scheme and timetable for preparing and adopting the new LDP.

Residents are encouraged to get involved by viewing and commenting on the documents from these initial stages online via the Council’s website.

The closing date for residents to have their say on the first stage of the process is 31 January 2022.

Cllr Neil Moore, Leader of the Vale of Glamorgan Council said:

“The Local Development Plan provides the policy framework for the Vale of Glamorgan and is a key part of the Vale of Glamorgan’s planning process.

“The plan sets out the vision, objectives, strategy, and policies for managing development in the Vale and contains a number of planning policies, making provision for the use of land for housing, employment, retailing, recreation, transport, and more.

“It’s important that we review and renew the plan to ensure all elements are up to date and meets the growth anticipated in the Vale in the coming years.”

“We welcome residents to take a look at the documents from the first stage of the process and submit any comments they may have.”
