The Replacement Local Development Plan (RLDP) Deposit Plan represents the first full draft of the emerging RLDP.

The Deposit Plan will set out the Strategy and Vision of the RLDP along with Strategic Policies, Topic Specific Policies, proposals and land use allocations for Monmouthshire (excluding the Brecon Beacons National Park). The Deposit Plan will identify and allocate land for housing and employment uses and indicate where these and other uses will be permitted. It will also identify areas where policies designed to protect and enhance the environment from inappropriate developments apply. Settlement Boundaries will be included within the Deposit Plan.

A Sustainability Appraisal Report (and Habitats Regulations Assessment Report if required) will also be prepared and published alongside the Deposit Plan.

The Deposit plan will be subject to formal consultation/engagement which will give people the opportunity to view the Plan and submit comments.
