Suggest sites for development in Blaenau Gwent

Blaenau Gwent Council is required to produce a Local Development Plan (LDP) to guide the use of land and development in the Borough.

The current LDP is available until 2021 and a revised Plan is being prepared which will set out guidelines for the development and use of land within Blaenau Gwent until 2033. 

Blaenau Gwent Council is calling for developers, landowners and the public to submit sites that could be included for new development, redevelopment or protection within a revised LDP.  This could be for any land use including residential, employment, education, recreation and leisure, other community facilities, retail, tourism, gypsy and travellers, minerals and waste and renewable energy technology. 

There is no guarantee that the sites suggested at this stage will be taken forward. However, their submission will enable the Council to assess the suitability and availability of these areas. This information can then be used when formulating a strategy for the future development of sites across the Borough.

To nominate a site for consideration, a plan of the site and a candidate site submission form must be submitted. Copies of the form are available from the Development Plans team based at the Civic Centre - Ebbw Vale, Anvil Court - Abertillery, all local libraries or via the revised Local Development Plan webpages. 

The deadline for the submission of sites is Thursday 24th January 2019. Officers are available to assist with the completion of the forms.
