Sites can be promoted for a variety of uses, including residential, employment, retailing, recreation, transport, tourism, minerals, waste and community use.

Residential developments must have a minimum site size threshold of 0.3 ha or 10 dwellings, at a minimum density of 30 dwellings per hectare.
Urban locations, such as Barry Town Centre, must have a minimum density of 50 dwellings per hectare. This is in line with the strategic placemaking principles in Future Wales.

For non-residential developments, there must be a minimum floorspace of 1,000m² or the site must have a minimum gross area of 1ha. 
The candidate site process is part of an information gathering exercise and should not be interpreted as a commitment from the Council that the sites will be taken forward into the RLDP.

If you wish to promote a site, you will need to complete the candidate site form and submit it in one of the following ways:


Guidance notes on how to complete the Candidate Site Submission Form can be found online. Submitted candidate sites will be compiled into a site register which will be available to view in due course.

The closing date for submissions is 13th September 2022.
