What is the Proposed Local Development Plan?

The Proposed Plan is a land use planning document which includes a clear long-term sustainable settlement strategy that reflects local needs, priorities and circumstances. The Plan will influence the location and form of new development by providing a basis for determining planning applications. The Proposed Plan represents the Council's settled view as to what the final content of the Plan should be. The Proposed Plan has been informed by the consultation on the Main Issues Report, an Environmental Assessment and background studies, including recently published  Infrastructure Reports for key settlements. Further information on the timeline and how we have consulted on the Development Plan is available through our Development Plan Scheme.

How do I view the Proposed Plan?

The following documents have been published as part of the Proposed Plan consultation:

As well as electronically, hard-copies of documents will be available to view at Pullar House (Perth) and local libraries/community campuses. If you wish to purchase any of the documents please contact a member of the team using the details below.

Infrastructure Reports have also been prepared to inform the Proposed Plan and will be reviewed periodically.

Environmental Assessment

As part of the plan-making process we are required to consider and assess any potential significant environmental effects. This is done through the undertaking of a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), the results of which are presented in an Environmental Report. At this stage in the process, the Council has prepared an Addendum to the Environmental Report and this has been published alongside the Proposed LDP for consultation.

The following SEA documents have been published as part of the consultation:

For further information on the Environmental Report which was published at the Main Issues Report stage, please visit the Main Issues Report webpage.
