Replacement Local Development Plan: Candidate Sites

The opportunity to submit candidate sites for consideration in the replacement Denbighshire Local Development Plan (LDP) 2018 - 2033 has now closed. Anyone wishing to have a site considered that has not already been received will need to submit a duly made representation at the Deposit consultation stage.

Candidate Sites were sought to address the demand for a range of land uses such as housing / residential, employment, retail, leisure and others.

Between 6 August and 26 November 2018 the Council invited interested parties to submit land for consideration to be included in Denbighshire’s next Local Development Plan 2018 to 2033 (LDP). A total of 203 submissions were received by the Council, focussing primarily on residential use.

We received 36 new candidate sites in response to the consultation on the draft Preferred Strategy for the Replacement Local Development Plan 2018 to 2033 (LDP).

Submitting a candidate site for the LDP is not the same as submitting a planning application to the Local Planning Authority. The publication of a candidate site does not mean that the site will automatically be taken forward as land for development in the Replacement LDP. These sites are not preferred sites for development at this stage in the plan-making process.

You can find more information in the following documents:

Every candidate site received an individual site reference number and is listed by settlement in the Candidate Site Register.

Below you can find a list of all settlements from where sites have been received. Clicking on the settlement name opens a new document showing site details, including a location map.

Please note that if a settlement cannot be found in the list below this means that the Council did not receive any proposal from this particular area.

What happens next?

All sites that have been submitted for consideration in the Replacement LDP will be fully assessed.

The Deposit Plan will contain those candidate sites that the Council is likely to include in the Replacement Local Development Plan 2018 to 2033.
