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.

Informal call for large development sites

The council is inviting submissions of potential development sites of over 1ha or more than 50 units.

The sites will not be formally assessed but will aid our understanding as to where the market is seeking to invest.

At this stage, only preliminary details of the site, including a map showing the site boundary, are requested.

More detailed information will be required at the formal call for candidate sites stage in 2021.

Please note: this is not a formal LDP stage and sites will need to be resubmitted at the formal call for candidate sites in spring/summer 2021.

If you have a site that you consider to be of sufficient importance, viable and able to deliver sustainable development during the next 15 years you are invited to submit details of the site using our form for potential development sites.

Responses should be received by the council by 5pm, 20 November 2020.
