Local Development Plan Review

Strategic Options

LDP Draft Issues, Vision, Objectives and Strategic Options

This preliminary stage of the LDP process sets out the overarching aims of the LDP and puts forward various options for meeting future housing growth requirements over the Plan period (up until 2033).


Two documents are presented for public consultation - the Draft Issues, Vision and Objectives paper and the Strategic Housing Options Paper (Growth and Spatial Distribution). 


The Issues – what are the key issues facing the Plan area (up until 2033)?

The Vision – the core purpose of the Plan

Objectives – Elaborate on the Vision and focus on the outcomes the Plan should deliver

Strategic Options – Various scenarios for future levels of housing growth and broad locations/policy options to consider for accommodating this growth



Draft Issues, Vision and Objectives

The Draft Issues, Vision and Objectives paper has been informed by initial workshops with County Councillors and Key Stakeholders, as well as a review of baseline evidence which includes relevant plans and policies.  It sets out for comment an initial set of Issues, a draft Vision and draft Objectives for potential inclusion in the Replacement Local Development Plan for Pembrokeshire 2017-2033. 


Strategic Options

The Strategic Housing Options Paper considers various possible scenarios of future population and housing growth for Pembrokeshire (excluding the National Park), up to 2033.  It sets out options for broad locations for accommodating this growth.  At this stage the options do not define precise boundaries, or land use allocations – site specific allocations form part of the Deposit LDP later on in the process.  Instead, the Options illustrate how growth may be split across different geographical areas and also identify specific options for rural areas.



The Council is running an informal public consultation on the documents between 16th July 2018 and 10th September 2018.  The outcomes from this consultation will inform the development of the Council's Preferred Strategy, which will be published in December 2018.  Please use the form below to respond to the consultation and email any comments to ldp@pembrokeshire.gov.uk.  Paper copies should be posted to: Development Plans Team, Pembrokeshire County Council, County Hall, Haverfordwest, SA61 1TP.
