Local Development Plan Review

Candidate Sites

Candidate Site Register - 3 Additional Sites

Pembrokeshire County  Council is reviewing its Local Development Plan.  The new plan will shape planning and development in Pembrokeshire for the next 15 years.

Between 17th December 2018 and 4th February 2019 at 4.30pm, the Council consulted on a Preferred Strategy for the new Plan.  At the same time, it consulted on several other related documents, including a Register of Candidate Sites, these being sites suggested to the Council for development or for protection from development, for possible inclusion in the new Plan.

During the consultation period, a further opportunity was provided to submit Candidate Sites. In consequence, a further 55 sites were received, these being known as the Additional Candidate Sites.

As the Council provided an opportunity to comment on the initial tranche of Candidate Sites, an opportunity to comment on the 55 Additional Candidate Sites was also provided.  This ran from the 17th April 2019 to the 6th June 2019 at 4.30pm.

Subsequently, it has become known that a small number of individuals on the PCC LDP 1 database were not notified of the opportunity to register their interest for the LDP 2 Plan database.

To remedy this oversight, Pembrokeshire County Council wrote to the affected persons, inviting them to a) register to receive notification on the Replacement LDP (LDP 2) and b) to offer each of them the opportunity to submit land as a Candidate Site.  This has resulted in three further Candidate Sites being added as an Addendum to the Candidate Sites Reigster during 2021.  The sites are located at Jeffreyston, Puncheston and Troopers Inn. 

It is now intended to give the public an opportunity to comment on the three further Candidate Sites between the 19th January 2022 and 16th March 2022 at 5.00pm.  This is consistent with the approach taken with regard to the  Candidate Sites submitted earlier in the plan process.  These sites will then be assessed using the same methodology as all other sites prior to preparation of a second Deposit Plan.

If you wish to comment on these three further Candidate Sites, please ensure to send these to the Authority by 5.00 pm on 16th March 2022, either by email to ldp@pembrokeshire.gov.uk or by post to  Development Plans Team, Pembrokeshire County Council, County Hall, Freemans Way, Haverfordwest, SA61 1TP.

The following documents include all sites that have been submitted to the authority for the replacement Local Development Plan (LDP2). These suggested sites are known as Candidate Sites.

A new schedule containing original and additional Candidate Sites has been published, along with the Authority’s initial assessment of them as part of an updated Candidate Sites Register. This register reflects changes made to the Rural Settlement Report available on the evidence page following Preferred Strategy responses.

This version also has the corresponding table for each settlement following each map rather than being in separate documents. Please see the cover text document, which explains the initial Site assessment before downloading the Candidate Site register.
