Local development plan (LDP)

Latest Update - The LDP Examination Inspectors' Final Report is now published and the Swansea LDP will now move forward for formal adoption.

The Inspectors' Final Report on the Examination into the Swansea LDP 2010 - 2025 has now been published and can be viewed via the download section below. The Inspectors' Report concludes that, subject to implementation of the binding changes set out within it, the Swansea LDP satisfies the requirements of the relevant legislation and meets the necessary 'tests of soundness'.  The Inspectors have confirmed that the Council has provided sufficient evidence to support the Plan, and that they consider the LDP policies and proposals will realistically be delivered. The binding changes are broadly consistent with those set out in the schedule of Matters Arising Changes to the Deposit Plan that arose out of the Examination process, which were subject to public consultation at the end of 2018.   The full extent of these changes are highlighted in the Inspectors Report.

The Swansea LDP, as amended by the binding changes set out in the Inspectors Report will now move forward to formal Plan adoption stage. These matters are scheduled to be discussed at a public meeting of full Council on the 28th February 2019.
