Supplementary guidance

Consultations

The Council has recently consulted on Supplementary Guidance for the emerging Local Development Plan 2 - further details are available at LDP2 Supplementary Guidance

What is 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 extensive detail is required for a specific area , e.g. development briefs, design guides and masterplans.  This allows the Local Development Plan to focus on the overall spatial strategy and the key policies and proposals. As a result of planning reform, Supplementary Guidance is now subject to extensive consultation and formal adoption procedures which allows it to form part of the Local Development Plan with greater weight than previously.

Statutory and non-statutory Supplementary Guidance

Supplementary Guidance which is statutory must have been referred to within the Local Development Plan, gone through consultation, approved by Scottish Ministers and consequently adopted by the Council.  Non-statutory Supplementary Guidance has been agreed by the Council but not approved by Scottish Ministers. This does not have as much 'weight' as statutory Supplementary Guidance. However, it should be considered the best practice to follow, except where material circumstances justify an exception.

Our current full list of Statutory Supplementary Guidance is as follows:

Policy Guidance

Design Guidance

Development Briefs/Masterplans/Development Frameworks (Developer responsible for the initial creation of these)
