Replacement Local Development Plan


Summary (optional)
The Local Development Plan (LDP) provides the legal framework for the development and use of land within the County Borough (excluding that part covered by the Snowdonia National Park Authority).

Commuted sums will include the cost of setting out, equipping and maintaining the site. These costs are based on the actual costs of providing new facilities and associated works. Costs will be reviewed annually and fixed for a period of 12 months. The current costs are set out in Appendix 3.

Worked Example:-A development of 30 dwellings (with an average of 2.4 persons per dwelling) = 72 persons generated.

Playing Pitches (72 x 12) = 864sqm

Outdoor Sports (72 x 16) = 1152sqm

Children's Play Space (72 x 8) = 576sqm

Based on the FIT minimum sizes for open space provision, this development could provide one LEAP on site under its requirement for children's play space and make a financial contribution to cover the requirements for playing pitches and outdoor sports.

2 Determine the number of habitable rooms. Where details exist this will again be absolute; in other circumstances it will be necessary to use a broad assessment e.g. 2-bed terrace, with 4 habitable rooms comprising lounge, dining room, kitchen and two bedrooms.
3 Apply occupancy rates from the 2001 Census to the number to estimate number of residents.
4 Apply 2001 Census information on population structure by age to the total number of residents.

NB When pupil numbers calculated, average number (i.e. figure divided by number of year groups - 15 if counting 6th form) is added to each year group
