The Local Development Plan 2020 will guide development in the Cairngorms National Park over the period 2020-2025 and into the longer term
We received a large number of responses to the Main Issues Report consultation, including some new site proposals that were not included in the Main Issues Report. We have considered these proposals and have identified a small number of new site allocations that we think are appropriate to include in the new Local Development Plan.
Government guidance states that planning authorities may need to carry out further consultation on any sites they intend to include in the Proposed Plan that were not included in the Main Issues Report.
We are not reopening the consultation on any other parts of the MIR and ask that you only consider the limited number of additional sites set out in this document. Any comments made on other issues or sites from the MIR will not be considered at this stage.
We are therefore carrying out a focussed consultation on the small number of new sites proposals that we wish to include in the new Local Development Plan. The consultation is running from 13 August until 21 September 2018.
We are required by law to ensure that our Local Development Plan is kept up-to-date and reviewed every 5 years. The current Local Development Plan was adopted in March 2015 so we need to ensure that a new Local Development Plan is in place by 2020.
It will take several years to produce the Local Development Plan 2020, and the process involves a number of key stages which are summarised in the diagram below.
You can find out more about the process and timetable for preparing the Local Development Plan 2020, and how you can get involved, by reading our Development Plan Scheme.
There are opportunities for members of the public and other interested parties to comment on the emerging Local Development Plan at the Main Issues Report stage and at the Proposed Plan stages. We recently consulted on our Main Issues Report and you can find out more about this below.
As part of our initial evidence and information gathering we undertook a ‘call for sites and ideas’. This allowed anyone with an interest in the development of land to propose sites on which they would like to see development happen in the future. This process was important as it helped to identify possible development options at an early stage.
We recently consulted on our Main Issues Report for the Local Development Plan 2020.
The Main Issues Report asked for your views on the big issues that the new Local Development Plan will need to address and the options for tackling them. The consultation provided an important opportunity to get involved and influence the content of the new Local Development Plan.
