Swansea Local Development Plan 2023-2038 (LDP2)

Work is underway in preparing a new development plan for Swansea. Once adopted LDP2 will replace the existing Local Development Plan and will provide the new planning blueprint for future development across Swansea up to 2038.

The new plan will set out how and where development should come forward to match identified growth ambitions. It will aim to ensure the right development happens in the right place at the right time, benefitting communities and the local economy, and that adequate protection is given to our natural environment.

The plan will set out the numbers of new homes and jobs we need to plan for, and will identify the locations in Swansea where new housing and employment sites will be. It will also provide a framework to secure affordable housing and new infrastructure through the development process, including new schools, play areas, cycle paths and even green infrastructure.

Once finalised and agreed, all future planning applications for proposed development in Swansea will be decided based on what is in LDP2.

Please visit our consultation portal to register your details to be kept up to date on future updates on LDP 2 and to be consulted as part of future consultations.
