Local Development Plan Review

Information on the review of the Local Development Plan and how you can get involved.

Local Development Plan Review 

The Local Development Plan (LDP) review is a process that takes several years and allows all interested parties to shape the outcome. We adopted a new LDP in November 2019 and will now focus on gathering evidence that informs the next Plan (LDP3). 

The Planning (Scotland) Act 2019 introduced changes to the way in which Development Planning is carried out. This includes greater up-front engagement with communities and the introduction of Local Place Plans. Not all of the changes in legislation are in force and further regulations and guidance continue to be published by the Scottish Government. These will influence the way we present evidence and consult with communities.

What is going to happen next?  

The  Development Plan Scheme (2023) (PDF) [1MB]  sets out our programme for preparing and reviewing our Local Development Plan. Our Development Plan Scheme is reviewed at least every year to provide an up-to-date picture of how preparation of the Plan is progressing. The Development Plan Scheme was updated in November 2023.

The first stage in the Plan is evidence gathering and consulting with communities. A programme of engagement called the Big Place Conversation took place in 2023 across Perth and Kinross to find out what communities like about their place, and what could be improved.

How do I get involved?

Please email the team at if you would like to find out more or be kept updated about the Big Place Conversation results and the next steps of the Local Development Plan.
