Good morning,

 

Our initial response was not provided correctly; I apologise for the
error.  

 

Please accept our revised response below:

 

How many acres of land under the local authorities' ownership has been
identified as suitable for housing?

 

The Local Development Plan outlines proposals for the use of land:
[1]LDP-Adopted-Plan-January-2015 (newport.gov.uk) and this includes a
table of housing sites.

 

32.39 acres under local authority ownership has been identified as
suitable for housing.

 

Kind regards,

Jodi
