This page contains details of the comments received on the Amended Sites consultation.


The Council submitted the Bridgend Local Development Plan (LDP) to the Welsh Government in July 2012.

An independent Inspector is in the process of conducting an examination to determine whether the plan is sound. His preliminary findings have concluded that additional sites are required to meet the housing needs of the County Borough up to 2021. He also considers that certain notational allocations illustrated on the Plan’s Proposals Map by means of a symbol need definitive boundaries to be shown.

As part of the response to the Inspector’s preliminary findings, Bridgend County Borough Council has produced a consultation document which includes a schedule of those PLA3 Mixed Use Sites in the Plan which are proposed to be amended.

In addition, the document also shows how the Council proposes to illustrate the definitive boundaries of those sites in the Plan which are shown by means of a notational symbol in the submitted Plan. Site specific Sustainability Appraisals have also been prepared to reflect these changes.

Revised Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment) and Habitats Regulations Assessment documents have been prepared to accompany the proposed changes including those Alternative Sites which the Council are now supporting to provide additional housing development (but are not subject to this consultation).

Where can I see the proposals?

Where can I see the proposals in full?

The full documentation is available at the following locations:

  • Online, using the links above.
  • At any library in the County Borough.
  • At the council’s Customer Service Centre in Civic Offices, Angel Street, Bridgend.

What are the next steps?

Once the consultation period has ended, all comments will be passed to the examination Inspector. He will consider the comments made and decide if any additional Examination hearing sessions are required to discuss the issues raised in more detail to enable him to decide if the Plan as amended is ‘sound’ and to inform his report to the Council which is expected in the summer of 2013.
