The Council's Strategic Planning function is responsible for the preparation and monitoring of the Council's Development Plan, and is also engaged on a range of other strategic planning projects, with the overall aim of facilitating the delivery of high quality development in Swansea.

The Strategic Planning Mission Statement is:

"To deliver and monitor an ambitious strategic planning agenda that seeks to enhance the built and natural environment for all, and enable development that successfully promotes placemaking and sustainability."

Adopted Local Development Plan (LDP)

The Swansea Local Development Plan (LDP) 2010-2025 was adopted on the 28th February 2019. The Plan was shortlisted as a finalist for the RTPI Awards for Planning Excellence 2020, and described as "An innovative, Strategic Planning Framework that sets out a bold placemaking vision for an ambitious City at the heart of the Swansea Bay Growth Region." Under the provisions of the Planning (Wales) Act, the Swansea LDP forms the statutory development plan for the Council. It will be used as the primary material consideration to inform decisions on planning applications and development proposals.

Planning Delivery and Monitoring

The Council will monitor the delivery of planning proposals that are promoted in the LDP, and will seek to facilitate implementation of development by means of relevant assessments, including financial viability appraisals. This process is vital to ensure the Council's objectives for placemaking are being met and that proposals are capable of moving towards implementation stage in the manner envisaged.
