The Clackmannanshire Local Development Plan (LDP) was adopted in August 2015. It contains a Vision Statement, Strategic Objectives, and planning policies for the future development of Clackmannanshire.
The LDP looks forward for planned developments 10 years from 2015, with an indication of where further development can take place in the next 20 years. It comprises of:
The Written Statement contains a description on the context for change in land use and development and for the planned pattern of development across this entire area; it provides the policy framework to guide development to the right place and how to enable quality, sustainable development outcomes. To do so it contains the following:
Focussing on sustainable economic growth, the LDP encourages the retention and growth of the population of Clackmannanshire, encouraging younger people and families into the area to balance the projected ageing population.
The provision of excellent educational, training and employment opportunities will be supported to encourage this, while the environment will be valued and protected in the transition to a successful low-carbon economy.
Design and layout polices encourage quality in the creation of developments and communities with a strong sense of place. Town centre regeneration will be a key issue during the lifetime of the LDP and policies are included to address this. Energy efficiency, low carbon development and an increasing focus on renewable energy and district heating are also promoted through the Plan. Clackmannanshire's Green Network, which forms part of the nationally identified Central Scotland Green Network, has been mapped and policies are developed to support it.
