Community Plan

Community Action Plan

This Community Plan is a visualisation of how the local residents would like the community to develop in years to come.

It details the evaluation of the responses from local consultation with residents and the results of a community questionnaire. Actions have been drawn from the issues raised (included at the end of this document) which will assist in informing future decisions and identify key issues where improvements can be made.

There are 5 sections under the project; Rural Enterprise, Social and Community Enterprise, Sustainable Tourism, Food Tourism and development and Festivals and Events; each with a tailored range of activities.

Monmouthshire Local Development Plan

The draft Preferred Strategy is the first formal consultation stage in the local development plan (LDP) process. It builds on the earlier Issues and Vision and Options participation stages, undertaken in August 2008 and December 2008/January 2009, and sets out the overall level of growth, broad locations for development and key areas of change/protection in Monmouthshire.

What is a Local Development Plan?
Monmouthshire County Council is preparing a Local Development Plan, under the new planning system introduced by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. The LDP will set out the Council’s vision and objectives for the development and use of land in Monmouthshire (excluding the area within the Brecon Beacons National Park), together with the policies to implement them over a 10 year period to 2021. When adopted, the LDP will constitute the development plan for the area – replacing the existing Monmouthshire Unitary Development Plan (UDP) – and will form the basis for decisions in the determination of planning applications and appeals. The LDP will therefore provide a measure of certainty about what kinds of development will be permitted and where during the plan period.
