LDP Preferred Strategy

The Preferred Strategy is the first formal strategy document in the preparation of the Swansea LDP.

Following extensive public consultation on the draft Preferred Strategy during 2013, the PDF Document LDP Preferred Strategy (2014) (PDF, 12MB)Opens new window was approved by the Council.  The document makes clear the development objectives and priorities for Swansea over the next 10 to 15 years.

The Preferred Strategy defines the LDP Vision and a set of overarching LDP Objectives that underpin the LDP.

The Preferred Strategy sets out the scale and location of new dwellings and jobs over the plan period 2010-2025. The Preferred Strategy defines a number of locations for strategic scale development, which will accommodate significant numbers of new housing supported by complementary services and facilities.  It also confirms that these large scale development areas will be supported by smaller scale edge of settlement allocations, including limited rural/semi-rural extensions, which will be allocated in the forthcoming Deposit LDP.  The Preferred Strategy is based on maximising the use of appropriate brownfield land and also involves the release of Greenfield land for development.

The Preferred Strategy was supported by strategic technical assessments, topic papers and other background evidence which are now available to view from the LDP Examination pages: The LDP Examination

N.B.  Preferred Strategy document does not define precise boundaries for proposed development areas or individual land use allocations. Site specific allocations of this nature form part of the Deposit LDP.

Comments made during the consultation on the draft Preferred Strategy can be viewed on the consultation page. A summary of the consultation process and the comments received is set out in the Initial Consultation Report.
