Local development plan (LDP)
The Unitary Development Plan (UDP) is to be replaced within the next few years by a new form of Development Plan for Swansea known as the Local Development Plan (LDP). This page contains links to the key stages of the LDP process and provides an update on latest news.
The City and County of Swansea Deposit LDP was presented to Council on 16 June and endorsed for a public consultation. The public consultation is now underway and will be ongoing throughout July and August.
This preliminary stage of the process sets the overarching aims of the LDP and puts forward various options for meeting future growth requirements over the Plan period.
The LDP draft proposals map defines the precise boundaries of proposed development allocations, including key strategic sites identified in the LDP Preferred Strategy, as well as proposed changes to settlement boundaries.
The delivery agreement is the first stage of the LDP preparation process and sets out how the process is to be managed, a timetable for delivery and the Council's policies for involving the community.
