What are development plans
Development plans are statutory documents required by 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:
- Strategic development plan
- Local development plan - adopted on 29 June 2015
- Statutory and non-statutory supplementary guidance
- Other guidance and monitoring
The proposed South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2 has been prepared and submitted to the Scottish Government Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) for consideration. It is anticipated that the plan will be adopted in 2020.
