The council will then assess the submissions to determine whether or not they are suitable for inclusion in the Replacement Local Development Plan.
Cllr Jake Berriman, Cabinet Member for a Connected Powys, said: “It is no secret that one of the reasons that we are reviewing our Development Plan early is because we have under delivered on housing completions.
“Ordinarily, this would be disappointing, but in a time when we face a housing crisis, it is unacceptable.
“Although the reasons for this lack of development are complex, what is striking is that that 68%, that is 54 of the 80 sites allocated in the existing Plan, do not have any form of planning permission, they have simply sat on someone’s books and contributed nothing to our pressing housing needs.
“In calling for sites now I want to make it very clear that we be examining all proposals very carefully and testing them for clear deliverability.
“Landowners and developers sitting on the 54 stagnant sites I have mentioned should beware that they will not simply be passported across to the new plan, I expect to see a clear route to delivery, this is the only way we can properly serve the needs of all our communities.”
