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 (2022) (PDF) [3MB] sets out Perth & Kinross Council's timetable of programme for the preparation in the next development plan. It is reviewed at least every year to provide an up-to-date picture of how the Plan is progressing. The Development Plan Scheme was updated in November 2022.
The first stage in the Plan is evidence gathering and consulting with communities. A programme of engagement starts next year across Perth and Kinross and is called the Big Place Conversation.
How do I get involved?
There will be events in your area to allow you to have your say about the future of your place and the Perth & Kinross area, or you will be able to hold your own conversations and let us know the results. More information on this can be found on the Big Place Conversation page.
