Proposed Local Development Plan Published by Aberdeenshire Council

Aberdeenshire Council has today published its Proposed Local Development Plan (LDP) for representations. The consultation period runs for 6 weeks, closing on Friday 8 May 2015.

The Proposed LDP has been prepared to implement the Aberdeen City and Shire Strategic Development Plan (SDP) which was approved by Scottish Ministers on 28 March 2014. The LDP covers the area of Aberdeenshire Council (except that part within the Cairngorms National Park) and includes detailed land allocations and policies for the development of the area up to 2026 and beyond. 

Aberdeen City Council published their Proposed Local Development Plan for consultation last week (Friday 20 March 2015).

The fact that both Proposed LDPs have been published before the first anniversary of the approval of the SDP is another welcome indication of the determination of both councils to keep their LDPs up-to-date. The two councils are the first in Scotland to publish Proposed LDPs for the second round of plans, following the first round of LDPs in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire which were adopted in 2012. 

The Proposed Plan is available online on the Aberdeenshire Council website.
