Consultation on the Preferred Strategy of the Torfaen Replacement Local Development Plan

Posted on: Friday 4 December 2020

The council is preparing a plan to identify where new developments such as housing, employment, community facilities, and supporting infrastructure, will go in Torfaen up to 2033. The plan that encompasses all of this information is called the Replacement Local Development Plan (RLDP).

Before the RLDP is finalised, various stages of consultation need to take place with stakeholders and residents.

The stage we now need to consult on is the Preferred Strategy. This strategy will guide the use of land in borough until 2033 which is why getting involved in the consultation is so important.

The Preferred Strategy document is the first main consultation stage in the preparation of the new RLDP which sets out how much development is needed and broadly where this is likely to be.

The closing date for the consultation is Friday 26th March 2021.
