In accordance with the Council's approved Delivery Agreement, landowners, developers, and other interested parties were invited to nominate 'Candidate Sites' for potential inclusion within the emerging Vale of Glamorgan Replacement Local Development Plan (RLDP), as a part of the pre-deposit stage of preparation. The call for Candidate Sites was held between 20th June 2022 and 13th September 2022. The purpose of the Candidate Site stage is to ensure that, if land is allocated for development in the RLDP, sites are realistic and deliverable within the Plan period, up to 2036.

It is important to note that at this stage, the inclusion of a site in the Candidate Site Register does not infer that a site will be allocated within the emerging RLDP, nor does it imply any preference of the Local Planning Authority regarding its merits.

The information provided on the Candidate Site submission form (which has been verified by Council Officers), together with any supporting documents submitted, has been used to assess sites for their potential inclusion within the pre-deposit proposals and / or deposit LDP. This assessment also includes a Sustainability Appraisal of those sites.

An index of the Candidate Sites follows this foreword. Sites are categorised as passing or failing the Stage 1 and 2 Assessment , as defined by the Candidate Site Assessment Methodology. Sites are then listed alphabetically by Settlement. The Register itself provides a location map of the site, together with limited information including; the reason for passing/failing the Stage 1 and 2 Assessment, the existing and proposed use(s)of the site, the size of the site and its unique site ID number. Details of the full assessment process which will be used to consider Candidate Site submissions is available to view on the Council's website:

As part of the Preferred Strategy consultation, interested parties have the opportunity to make representation on the submitted candidate sites. Further information can be found here at Vale of Glamorgan Replacement Local Development Plan 2021-2036 Preferred Strategy .

Please note that this is an initial assessment at this stage and the status of sites may be subject to change in light of additional information.

Any planning applications submitted on Candidate Sites will continue to be assessed in the usual way under the relevant policies of the adopted Vale of Glamorgan Local Development Plan (LDP), until such a time as they are superseded by the RLDP.
