Criteria for candidate sites

Candidate Sites (Criteria)

This is not the call for candidate sites, that will take place in Spring 2009, but is a consultation on the Draft Criteria that will be used for assessing such sites when submitted. The Draft Criteria therefore set out the type of information that will be asked for in the formal call for candidate sites, and has been prepared in the light of Welsh Assembly guidance. Click on the following link to view the Draft Candidate Site Criteria.

The criteria set out in draft form is the information that it is proposed to be requested at the call for sites. This is your opportunity to have your say as to what information should be requested. Following consultation, the agreed list will be set out in as user-friendly form as possible for the formal consultation. 

The call for candidate sites in spring 2009 will require detailed information for all sites, whether already submitted as major candidate sites, or if coming in new at that stage.

The Draft Candidate Site Criteria has been subject to a six week consultation, if you have any further questions please contact the planning policy team.
