Replacement Bridgend Local Development Plan 2018 to 2033
BCBC is consulting on the Replacement Local Development Plan Preferred Strategy. The strategy gives the context for the preparation of more detailed policies, proposals and land use allocations in the coming Deposit Local Development Plan. Also, the strategy gives BCBC's vision, strategic objectives and Spatial Strategy for Bridgend County Borough’s future development and growth. It is a set of strategic policies for the Local Development Plan’s (LDP’s) main priorities.
This consultation’s position in the process of replacing the LDP
The preferred strategy is the first part of the Bridgend Replacement LDP process. It signals the end of pre-deposit plan preparation and engagement, and so, this is the ‘Pre-deposit Proposals Statutory Public Consultation’. The documents can be found here, and identify Bridgend Town and Valleys Gateway as key strategic sites that are too be developed further. Residents are urged to look at the plans and respond accordingly in writing. The Clerk will be pleased to receive copies of rany resident responses so that NHCC may also reflect community views.
