Preferred Strategy

The development of the Preferred Strategy came after the adoption of the Vision and Objectives and consultation on the Strategic Options of the plan. 

The Preferred Strategy (pdf) sets out the direction proposed for the Newport Local Development Plan 2011 – 2026.

Consultation took place January to March 2010.


The Strategy gives the framework within which detailed policies and proposals will be developed at the next stage, i.e. the deposit plan.

It seeks to build on Newport’s strengths and to meet the challenges of providing land for homes, jobs and facilities in an environmentally sustainable way.
