A Delivery Agreement (DA) for the Swansea RLDP has been prepared, based on the findings set out in a comprehensive review of the adopted LDP. The Council formally approved the DA on 6 July 2023, which has also been agreed by the Welsh Government.

The DA confirms exactly how the process of replacing the LDP will be undertaken, including all the ways that you can get involved. It sets out the timescales and key stages of the plan preparation process, including details of the first key stage - the call for candidate sites
