On the 28th January 2016 the Council adopted a Local Development Plan for Cardiff.  The LDP became operative on its adoption and now forms the development plan and will be the basis for decisions on land use planning in Cardiff.


The LDP will be used by the Council to guide and manage development, providing a basis by which planning applications will be determined and will supersede the existing adopted development plan framework for Cardiff comprising the Cardiff Deposit Unitary Development Plan (2003), South Glamorgan (Cardiff Area) Replacement Structure Plan, Mid Glamorgan County Structure Plan, South Glamorgan (Cardiff Area) Minerals Local Plan and City of Cardiff Local Plan.
