Proposed Local Development Plan Published by Aberdeen City Council

Aberdeen City Council has today published its Proposed Local Development Plan (LDP) for representations. The consultation period runs for 10 weeks, closing on Monday 1 June 2015.

The Proposed LDP has been prepared to implement the Aberdeen City and Shire Strategic Development Plan (SDP) which was approved by Scottish Ministers on 28 March 2014. The LDP covers the area of Aberdeen City Council and includes detailed land allocations and policies for the development of Aberdeen City. 

Aberdeenshire Council expect to publish their Proposed Local Development Plan for consultation later this week (Friday 27 March 2015).

The fact that both Proposed LDPs will be published before the first anniversary of the approval of the SDP is another welcome indication of the determination of both councils to keep their LDPs up-to-date. The first round of LDPs in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire were adopted in 2012 and these new plans will be adopted within the 5-year statutory target. 

The Proposed Plan is available online on the Aberdeen City Council website.
