Swansea Council Logo 2017Starting the Conversation on Vision, Objectives and Options for Growth - Swansea Local Development Plan 2023 – 2038 is the new plan that will provide a planning blueprint that replaces the existing Swansea Local Development Plan 2010-2025.

Swansea Council have reached an important early ‘key stage’ in the preparation of LDP2, and want to engage with stakeholders on the aspects that will inform the future strategy for the plan.

This stage of LDP2 is about identifying the issues, opportunities and challenges facing Swansea, and defining a vision and overarching objectives that will address these and set the strategic agenda for the new development plan.

At this stage they also need to identify the level of housing and jobs growth that LDP2 must provide for, and consider how best to accommodate this growth spatially within the County. 
Swansea Council would like your views on these key elements to help them reach a consensus on these important underlying elements that will provide the building blocks of LDP2. This will inform the production of a draft ‘Preferred Strategy’ for wider public consultation later in 2024.
