Candidate Sites

The initial call for Candidate Sites for the Local Development Plan (LDP) is now open. The LDP will identify land to address the National Park’s development needs, including proposals for housing, employment, retailing and community facilities. The sites may currently be either developed or undeveloped and the threshold for sites that are for residential uses only are for 3 dwellings or more. There is no minimum threshold for all other land use site submission. The Authority is therefore inviting anyone to submit sites that they wish to be considered for development.

Whilst there is no guarantee that sites suggested at this stage will be taken forward into the LDP, Candidate Site submissions allow the Authority to ascertain the availability of land for development during the Plan period.  All Candidate Sites will be considered on their own merits and will be assessed against set criteria. All candidate sites received by the Authority will be included on a site register that will be available for inspection at the National Park HQ in Brecon, and uploaded on the Authority’s website.

If you would like to nominate a site for consideration for inclusion in the LDP, please submit:

  • A completed Candidate Site Form, and
  • An ordinance survey based map, of minimum scale 1:2500, outlining the land for consideration in red.

Please ensure that a separate form is completed for each site and the closing dates for submissions is midnight on 7th January 2019.

Please note all Candidate Sites received by the Authority will be included on a site register that will be available for public inspection at the National Park HQ in Brecon, and updated monthly on the Authority’s website therefore any information provided cannot be treated as confidential.
