Proposed Local Development Plan 2

What is the Proposed Local Development Plan?

The Local Development 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 was informed by the consultation on the Main Issues Report, an Environmental Assessment and background studies, including 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.

We prepared a video to help assist with viewing the Proposed Plan, and provide a general introduction to the development planning process.

Following adoption of the LDP we intend to publish an online storymap to assist with using the Plan and to help visualise it to a wider audience.

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

As well as electronically, hard-copies of documents are available to view at Pullar House (Perth). If you wish to purchase any of the documents please contact a member of the team using the details below.

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 prepared an Addendum to the Environmental Report and this was published alongside the Proposed LDP for consultation.

The following SEA documents were 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.
