Proposed SDP Ratification and Consultation

The SDPA met on Friday 9 November 2012 and approved a Proposed Aberdeen City and Shire Strategic Development Plan, subject to ratification by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council and minor amendments (SDPA Agenda).

Aberdeenshire Council ratified the decision of the SDPA at its meeting of 22 November 2012, while Aberdeen City Council meet to consider ratification on 19 December 2012.

It is currently anticipated that the Proposed Strategic Development Plan will be published on 11 January 2013, with a seven week period for representations closing on 1 March 2013. Although the period for representations to the plan is two months later than envisaged in the current Development Plan Scheme (2012/13), it is still proposed to submit the plan to Scottish Ministers before 17 August 2013 (four years after the approval of the current Structure Plan by Scottish Ministers).

More information will be available closer to the time of publication, with a further update provided before Christmas after Aberdeen City Council meet.
