The Council recently invited land-owners, developers and members of the public to submit ‘Candidate Sites’ that could be considered for inclusion for development, redevelopment and/or protection in the Monmouthshire Replacement Local Development Plan (LDP). This initial call for candidate sites closed on 19th November 2018.
All of the candidate sites submitted are available to view in the Candidate Sites Register. The Register is simply a log of all of the candidate sites submitted as part of the initial call for sites and is for information purposes only. It is not a public consultation document.
The Register is also available to view at Planning Reception, County Hall, The Rhadyr, Usk, NP15 1GA.
Please note: The inclusion of a candidate site in the Register does not represent a commitment from the Council that a site is suitable for development/ protection or that it will be taken forward to the Replacement Deposit LDP. Nor does it imply any preference of the Local Planning Authority regarding the merits of a site.
The candidate sites submitted at this stage will be subject to a high level assessment (i.e. initial sift) to help inform the Preferred Strategy. There will be a second call for candidate sites following the publication of the Replacement LDP Preferred Strategy, later in 2019. The candidate sites will then be assessed for inclusion in the Replacement LDP. There will be full public consultation on the preferred sites at the Deposit Plan stage. Further details of the candidate sites process is set out in the Candidate Sites Assessment Methodology (July 2018) An Overview of the Candidate Sites Process is also available to view here.
