What are development plans
Development plans are statutory documents required by the Scottish Government which guide the future use of land. They indicate where development and regeneration can take place and where it should not. The development plan sets out policies and proposals which helps guide decisions on planning applications.
The development plan for South Lanarkshire consists of:
South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 3
We will shortly start preparing a replacement Local Development Plan (to be known as LDP3). The new plan will focus on the outcomes that will deliver better places for local people and communities, tackle inequalities address the climate and nature crises. It will be prepared collaboratively in partnership with stakeholders, partners, and our local communities. This will involve extensive engagement and consultation throughout the process of preparing LDP3.
We have prepared a draft Development Plan Scheme which includes a Participation Statement and a timetable for each stage of the process. This can be found on the related page by clicking the link in the related content section above.
We will be developing different engagement methods including the creation of an online hub. Look out for further details on this webpage.
