Local Development Plan 2 - Supplementary Guidance
Supplementary Guidance expands upon existing policies and proposals and is used to support the content of the Local Development Plan. It is particularly important when detail is required for a specific policy area or strategic development site. In order for the Supplementary Guidance to form Statutory Guidance, it must be subject to consultation and formal adoption procedures which allows it to form part of the Local Development Plan.
The list of Supplementary Guidance noted below is associated with the policies of the Local Development Plan (2019). The Council has consulted on the following draft Supplementary Guidance in 2019:
- Developer Contributions & Affordable Housing
- Green & Blue Infrastructure
- Forest & Woodland Strategy
- Renewable & Low Carbon Energy
- Airfield Safeguarding
- Air Quality & Planning
- Delivering Zero Waste
- Flood Risk & Flood Risk Assessments
- Housing in the Countryside
- Open Space Provision for New Development and the associated Policy on Maintenance Options for Public Open Spaces
We have considered all the responses received to the above draft Supplementary Guidance. The next step is to report to Council in January 2020 how responses have been taken in to account in preparing the finalised Guidance. Following approval at Committee the Guidance and associated documents will be issued to Scottish Ministers for scrutiny. The Guidance will then be formally adopted and issued by the Council. Once adopted, the Supplementary Guidance will support the policies of the LDP (2019) and be used to inform the determination of planning applications. Please note the Consultation Privacy Statement [53Kb] sets out how any comments to consultations are handled.
The Council is also expecting to consult on the following statutory Supplementary Guidance in 2020/1:
Please note Supplementary Guidance associated with the 2014 Local Development Plan (which has now been superseded) has lost it's formal statutory status but still forms guidance to inform the consideration of the planning application process until such time as Supplementary Guidance linked to the LDP (2019) is formally adopted.
Non-statutory planning guidance is guidance which has been adopted by the Council but without going through the formal procedures for Supplementary Guidance. However, the Council's adoption of it will give it a degree of authorisation and it may be a material consideration in the decision making process. We will be reviewing non-statutory planning guidance, where required, early in 2020 to consider if any updates are required.
