Replacement Local Development Plan

The Newport Local Development Plan (LDP) was adopted by the council on 27 January 2015 and sets out the council’s planning framework for the development and use of land in Newport between 2011 – 2026.

In accordance with statutory requirements the LDP has been monitored on an annual basis with five Annual Monitoring Reports (AMR) published to date.

To ensure that LDPs are kept up‐to‐date, local planning authorities are required to commence a full review of their plans at least once every four years following plan adoption, or sooner if the findings of the AMRs indicate significant concerns with a plan’s implementation.

On 14 October 2020 Newport City Council agreed to begin the formal review process of the LDP. 

The first stage of the Replacement Local Development Plan is to produce a Review Report and Delivery Agreement.

Review Report and Delivery Agreement

  • The Review Report sets out the results of an analysis of the previous LDP and proposes the method of undertaking the replacement LDP.
  • The Delivery Agreement sets out the proposed timetable and Community Involvement Scheme which explains who, when and how engagement will occur over the key stages of the replacement LDP process.
