Local Development Plan 2

We have prepared a new Local Development Plan for South Lanarkshire. South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) will replace the current LDP which was adopted in 2015.

Consultation on the Main Issues Report took place in 2016. The comments received were taken into account in the preparation of the LDP2 Proposed Plan, which was approved by the Planning Committee on 29 May 2018. A summary of the consultation comments and the Council’s response can be viewed here

South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2 – MIR Consultation Responses

South Lanarkshire Council has now prepared a Proposed South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2, Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and Environment Report Annex, Supporting Planning Guidance on Renewable Energy and associated documents. As required under the Planning etc. (Scotland) Act 2006 and section 16 of the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005, South Lanarkshire Council is seeking comments on these documents.

The Proposed Plan and its associated maps and documents can be viewed or downloaded via the links below:

We asked for your views on these documents during the consultation period which ran from 27 July for 8 weeks, closing on 21 September 2018 - the comments received can be viewed on the consultation portal.

The MIR, the accompanying Environmental Report and the associated documents can still be viewed.

The proposed South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2 has now been submitted to the Scottish Government Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) for consideration. It is anticipated that the plan will be adopted in 2020.

Minerals Non Statutory Planning Guidance 2017 - the proposed South Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) will include minerals policies in Volume 1 and Volume 2. Until such time as the LDP2 is adopted, non-statutory guidance on Minerals was approved in November 2017 to bridge the gap in Minerals Plan Policy coverage.
