Report of Deposit Representations

Responses to the Deposit consultation included a number that related to site allocations shown in the LDP.

These ‘Alternative Site’ representations were submitted by individuals / organisations which they consider should either be allocated in the Plan (a new site), removed from the Plan (a deleted site) or altered in some way (an amended site).

The ‘Alternative Sites’ were included in a Register and the formal 6-week consultation period ran from Tuesday 28th January to Monday 10th March 2014.

The ‘Register of Alternative Sites’ was made available for comment online and also for public inspection during normal office hours at Neath Civic Centre, Port Talbot Civic Centre and all libraries across the County Borough.

The Council received a total of 1,072 representations to the Register from 618 different respondents. Of these 861 were comments objecting to the inclusion of the Alternative Sites, 86 were comments supporting the inclusion of the Alternative Sites and 125 were general comments. The report below presents all comments received in relation to the Register.
