Development Plan Update - February 2014

Local Development Plan front coverLocal Development Plan

The Local Development Plan (LDP) provides strategic direction and a set of policies and proposals for a sustainable future for our area up to 2034.

Our Proposed Plan was open to public consultation and all written representations received have been acknowledged. The Development Plan Scheme indicates the timelines for the remaining stages in moving towards an adopted plan. Initially from here we shall fully consider all representations and decide how we ought to respond. All parties will be notified of this in due course. When the Proposed Plan is adopted it will replace the existing Development Plan.

Our new Plan's focus is to support sustainable economic growth, improve quality of life and to protect our environment. The Plan places strong emphasis on identifying opportunities for change whilst continuing to enhance and regenerate Clackmannanshire.

In the meantime, until our proposed plan is adopted, the documents that make up the Proposed Clackmannanshire LDP can be referred to below:

You can view an electronic version of the Local Development Plan through our On-line Local Development Plan portal.

Our Development Plan Scheme is updated annually and indicates the wider timeframe in preparation and determination of our Plan.

Community engagement on related documents and reports

Simultaneously with the opportunity for written representation on the proposed LDP, we consulted over the same period on some related documents and statements that are listed below.

An Environmental Report was prepared for the LDP setting out any likely significant environmental impacts and proposing measures to avoid, reduce, mitigate or offset any adverse impacts on the environment, and also identifying matters to be addressed in enhancing any positive impacts. See the links given below.
