Local Development Plan

I have received the following correspondence from Council Officers regarding the LDP, which may be of interest to a number of local residents. Please note the highlighted period for public representations.


“Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to update you on the Local Development Plan project and to let you know

about the Council’s latest Development Plan Scheme – a booklet we prepare to give a

rolling update on the timetable for the plan.

The new Development Plan Scheme is available to view here or in Council libraries.

If you would like to be sent a paper copy, please contact Marius Hince at

0131 529 4692 or by emailing localdevelopmentplan@edinburgh.gov.uk .

It replaces the previous Development Plan Scheme which was published in October 2013.

The new Development Plan Scheme explains that the Council has now prepared a Second Proposed Plan.

The Council has considered the representations which were made on the first version of the Plan in 2013.

You will be able to make written representations on the Second Proposed Plan from 22 August to 3 October 2014.

The new Development Plan Scheme explains how to find out more about the Plan and its supporting documents.

It also has information on some drop-in engagement events taking place in August and September.

If you have any queries, please contact us using the details in the Development Plan Scheme.

You can get more information at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/localdevelopmentplan “
