Call for land suitable for housing development in Conwy

June 13, 2018 at 4:36 PM

A call is being made to land and property owners in Conwy who may have land suitable for future housing projects.

Conwy County Borough Council (CCBC) is replacing its Local development Plan (LDP) and has agreed a timetable for consultation with the community to ensure a sound and sustainable development plan is produced in a transparent manner.

“Stakeholders and members of the public can contribute to the LDP process to establish a consensus on the plan’s aims, strategy and best practice regarding sustainable development,” explained Eifion Bibby.

“The replacement LDP will have a plan period of 15 years, running from  April 1, 2018 to  March 31, 2033 so there is some urgency in getting the plan agreed,” he said.

As part of the early stages of plan preparation, the council will invite all landowners with an interest in the County borough to submit details of their land for consideration for inclusion in the Replacement Local Development Plan.  The submission of ‘candidate sites’ for consideration does not imply that the site is suitable for development and all candidate sites will undergo stringent assessment procedures to determine their suitability for further consideration as part of the LDP process.

“Planning authorities must ensure they have a five-year- supply of land for housing yet  CCBC has not achieved a five-year land supply since 2009/10 and the most recent Joint Housing Land Availability Study calculated a 3.1 year housing land supply in 2017,” explained Eifion.

“It is crucial that any new sites can deliver housing in a timely manner and the Council will be reviewing all undeveloped housing allocations in the LDP to ensure that development on these sites remains viable and the allocations will be delivered.

“This could result in certain housing allocations being removed from the LDP and new sites being allocated to meet local housing needs up to 2031 with settlement boundaries being revised where necessary.”

The Council will contact developers, agents and bodies representing landowners, giving them an opportunity to suggest sites that might be suitable for development and will advertise in local newspapers and on its website, giving the public an opportunity to make similar suggestions.

The timetable for call for Candidate Sites is from May to November 2018 so anyone with a potential site should make arrangements to submit details identifying the parcel.
