The Consultation on the Draft Review Report is now closed

The existing Local Development Plan was adopted in January 2016. In accordance with guidance, as it is 4 years since the Plan was adopted the Council is now required to embark on a review of the Plan.

 A full review of the current Neath Port Talbot LDP (2011-2026) commenced in January 2020 and has culminated with the publication of the Draft Review Report.

The Draft Review Report provides an overview of the issues that have been considered as part of the full LDP review process and subsequently identified potential changes that are likely to be needed to any revised LDP.

 The Draft Review Report was subject to a 6 week consultation period from 3rd February to the 16th March 2020. 

Whilst the consultation is now closed, the draft Review Report remains available to view or download below:
