The council adopted Caerphilly County Borough Local Development Plan (LDP) on the 23 November 2010. The LDP identifies where new developments such as housing, employment, community facilities, and roads, will go. It provides a framework for local decision-making and brings together both development and conservation interests to ensure that any changes in the use of land are coherent and provides maximum benefits to the community.
The LDP sets out the council's land use policies and proposals to control development in the county borough up to 2021, and provides the basis by which planning applications will be determined consistently and appropriately. The plan gives a clear indication of where development will be encouraged and where it will be resisted.
Copies of the adopted LDP, the recommendations of the person appointed to hold the independent examination, the sustainability appraisal report (incorporating the environmental report), the consultation report and a statement indicating how the environmental report etc has been taken into account are available for inspection free of charge at the Council Offices in Pontllanfraith, Blackwood during office hours, and at all Public Libraries and Customer Service Centres in the County Borough during their opening times.
