What is the Local Development Plan?

The Local Development Plan (LDP) identifies where new developments such as housing, employment, community facilities, and roads, will go. It provides developers and the public with certainty about the planning framework for Blaenau Gwent.

The LDP sets out our land use policies and proposals to control development in the county borough up to 2021, and provides the basis by which planning applications will be determined consistently and appropriately. The plan gives a clear indication of where development will be encouraged and where it will be resisted.

Adopted LDP

The current Local Development Plan (LDP) was adopted on the 22 November 2012.

LDP First Review

In November 2016, the Council will be required to undertake a review of the LDP, as one is required every 4 years. Any future consultations related to the Local Development Plan and accompanying documents will be published on the Council’s consultation page
