Edinburgh Local Development Plan – scheme 2017

(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council)

Edinburgh Council has published a new Development Plan Scheme.  The Scheme is available
to view online at: www.edinburgh.gov.uk/localdevelopmentplan.

The Development Plan Scheme will also be available for inspection from 11 September 2017 at the Council’s offices at the Planning front desk, Waverley Court, 4 East Market Street, Edinburgh and in Council libraries.

The Scheme explains that the first Local Development Plan was formally adopted in November 2016.  Since then the Council has gathered feedback from stakeholders to help improve preparations for the next Local Development Plan – LDP 2.  That feedback is now available online at: www.edinburgh.gov.uk/localdevelopmentplan.

The Scheme also outlines the timetable for LDP 2.  That will be updated in a new Development Plan Scheme to be published in 2018.
