Candidate site register - three additional sites included

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

The Council launched a consultation on a Preferred Strategy for the new Plan on 17 December 2018, which closed at 4.30pm on 4 February 2019. 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, closing 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 notifications 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 Register 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. 

Details of the consultation on the three further Candidate Sites can be viewed on the Authority’s website here: https://www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/local-development-plan-review/candidate-sites
