LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN – (LDP)  This is the basis on which local planning applications are decided. The current Local Plan, adopted in November 2016, (and various supporting papers, eg “Supplementary Guidance” papers) can been downloaded from this link.. For our patch the SE proposals map is relevant.

HERE is a link to a useful, multilayered interactive proposals map. Once you have zoomed to the area you are interested in, you can click to see all the policies relevant to a particular patch and then go to that part of the plan. TRY IT.

The LDCC contributed to the consultations on the local plan at various stages and held public meetings to enable you to comment.

City of Edinburgh Council must prepare an Action Programme to identify infrastructure needs to service new development (including NHS provision) and can prepare Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) for the development of areas and provide detailed guidance of specific planning issues. CEC intend to revise and to consult on the LDP Action Programme. CEC also intend to revise and progress the various Supplementary Guidance documents prepared whilst the LDP was being progressed. None is applicable to LDCC area apart from the one on Developer Contributions. Click HERE for the last.
