After adopting the Vision and Objectives and wide spread consultation of the Strategic Options of the plan, the next stage is developing the Preferred Strategy. This document sets out the overall direction proposed for the Newport Local Development Plan 2011 – 2026. As such it provides the framework within which detailed policies and proposals will be developed at the next stage, i.e. the deposit plan.
Overall, the strategy seeks to build on Newport’s strengths, and to meet the challenges of providing land for homes, jobs and facilities for its present and future residents in an environmentally sustainable way that faces the challenges of global warming.
The Preferred Strategy was available for consultation in January until March 2010.
There was also an opportunity to attend one of two consensus building consultation events to debate the Preferred Strategy during early February 2010.
