Pre-Deposit Proposals

The Council has approved for consultation the Bridgend LDP Pre-Deposit Proposals which outline the Vision, Objectives and Preferred Strategy for the Plan, illustrated though the Strategic Diagram and implemented through Strategic Policies. This consultation took place between 12 February – 31 March 2009.

The Pre-Deposit Proposals have also been subject of an independent Initial Sustainability Appraisal (SA) (which incorporates the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)) and have been screened for a Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA).

The Pre Deposit Proposals Document is available to read here.

The Sustainability Appraisal Non- Technical Summary is available to read here.

The full Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment) is available to read here.

The Screening Report for the Habitats Regulations Assessment is available to read here.

The Bridgend Local Development Plan Pre Deposit Proposals sets out a vision for the LDP which states:

“By 2021, Bridgend County Borough will be transformed to become a sustainable, safe, healthy and inclusive network of communities comprising strong, interdependent and connected settlements with improved quality of life and opportunities for all people living, working, visiting and relaxing in the area.

The catalysts for this transformation will be:

  • a successful regional employment, commercial and service centre in Bridgend
  • a vibrant waterfront and tourist destination in Porthcawl
  • a revitalised Maesteg and
  • thriving Valley communities”

The Pre-Deposit Proposals are based around the following four themes:

- To produce high quality sustainable places

- To protect and enhance the environment

- To spread prosperity and opportunity through regeneration

- To create safe, healthy and inclusive communities

The successful delivery of the LDP Strategy relies on three elements:

- the implementation of four key strategic regeneration growth areas

- the development of four strategic employment sites

- the delivery of other targeted regeneration projects

A summary of the proposals is contained within the LDP Newsletter which was delivered to every household in the County Borough, click here to read a copy.

As well as being available online, the full documentation is available at the following locations:

  • At your local library
  • At the council’s Customer Service Centre in the Civic Offices, Angel Street, Bridgend

Now the consultation period has ended, all comments will be presented to Bridgend County Borough Council and any appropriate changes will be made to the preferred LDP strategy which will then be incorporated into the Deposit Bridgend Local Development Plan. This will then be the subject of further public consultation in 2010.
