Monmouthshire Delivery Agreement

“Following my e-mail of 14 October 2020, in which I inform on the Monmouthshire Local Development Plan (RLDP), I can confirm that the revised procurement agreement (October 2020), which changes the project`s timetable and community participation programme following the Covid 19 pandemic and the recent release of the 2018 population and budget projections, was approved by the Welsh Government on 30 October 2020 and is available on the Council`s website at: www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/planning-policy/delivery-agreement/ The revised delivery agreement will be notified to members at the National Park Authority meeting on 7 August 2020, after which the revised DA will be submitted to the Welsh Government in order to reach a formal agreement. I hope this update will be useful. If you need more information, please contact the planning team – E-mail: planningpolicy@monmouthshire.gov.uk phone: 01633 644429. Welsh Government – Planning Guidance: Approving Non-material Amendments to an Existing Planning Permission (July 2014) In April 2016, the Welsh Government published a new policy paper with the code “Design and Access Statements in Wales: Why, What and How” developed by the Design Commission for Wales (DCFW). The document outlines the benefits of a DAS, including systems that do not require such systems under legislation. It provides advice on what should or should not be included in an DAS, guidelines on a proposed structure for the document, and on the problems that an DAS should contain and address. As of September 1, 2017, a heritage impact statement is required to support any application for permission for the listed building or protected area. The Heritage Impact Statement replaces the design and access declaration in the classified building permit application process.

These guidelines replace all Welsh Government guidelines on DAS and are available on the following link: RLDP Growth and Spatial Options Non-status Consultation: December 2020-January 2021 RL PreferredDP Strategy Consultation and Second Call for Candidate Sites: May-June 202 RLDP Deposit Consultation: July -September 2022 RLDP Subject to Review: Early 2023 RLDP Adoption: Fall 2023 Unfortunately All previous submissions on growth and space options and preferred strategy are no longer valid, as we return to these key phases. You must therefore make new comments at the appropriate time of the planning process.
