SESplan, the Strategic Development Planning Authority for South East Scotland, has prepared a new Proposed Strategic Development Plan. The Proposed Strategic Development Plan sets out a vision, broad development patterns and levels of growth for the city region over a 20 year period from 2018.

It is intended that the plan will replace the current Strategic Development Plan in 2018 and will inform the next set of Local Development Plans in the future. The Proposed Strategic Development Plan is based on the options in, and responses to, the 2015 Main Issues Report.

The Proposed Strategic Development Plan, the Environmental Report and other supporting documents are available to view on the SESplan website: www.sesplan.gov.uk

The formal period of representations on the Proposed Strategic Development Plan will start on 13 October and run until 5pm on Thursday 24 November 2016. During this period anyone will be able to submit representations using the SESplan Consultation Portal:  Continue reading

Edinburgh greenbelt: SESplan and Cockburn Association

You can directly respond to SESplan’s report here. If you do so, please respond as an individual, not on behalf of LCCC.

However, the Cockburn Association says

The Cockburn Association (Edinburgh Civic Trust) is preparing its response for the 2nd South East Scotland Strategic Development Plan (SESplan2) Main Issues Report (MIR).

It would be most helpful if we could include your views on some of the key issues in our response.  These are outlined on the attached survey form.  Although the form requests a name/postcode, your views will not be attributed, as the intention is to collate and summarise the survey responses for inclusion in our representations on the MIR to the six Local Authorities that have prepared this plan, which include the City of Edinburgh Council.

If you are able to complete the survey, we would be grateful if you could return it to us by Friday 28 August 2015

Please download the CA’s survey from here.
