Replacement Bridgend Local Development Plan 2018 to 2033

The Bridgend Replacement Local Development Plan (LDP) is a high level strategy which must be prepared by the council. The LDP sets out in land-use terms the priorities and objectives of the Corporate Plan. The future Replacement LDP will be required to express in land-use terms the wellbeing objectives and priorities of the Bridgend Public Services Board’s Wellbeing Plan.

BCBC recently invited submissions from developers, landowners and the public for sites for new development, redevelopment or protection in the Replacement LDP.  These sites are known as ‘candidate sites’ and are available to view on the Candidate Site Register.

The submission of a candidate site does not guarantee that it will be taken forward into future Local Development Plan policy proposals. It is also not a planning application.

This site register is not a consultation document but is available for public inspection. Future planning decisions for the area are based on the agreed Local Development Plan that is in place. 

The request for 'candidates sites' across the County closed on November 9th 2018,  and the suggestions put forward  - potentially affecting Pen-y-Fai and Aberkenfig - are included and can be found via here.


NHCC submitted the Pheasant Field, Penyfai as a candidate site for public open space.


Next stages of the development of the Local Development Plan and any future consultation can be found by checking back from time to time on this link or direct to the BCBC website.
