Call for Issues and Call for Sites: 20 January – 31 March 2015
Work begins now on the Council’s next Local Development Plan that will cover the period 2018-23 and the Council is looking for your input.
The Development Plans team is now at the stage where they begin to prepare a document called the Main Issues Report. This will concentrate on changes that have occurred since the previous plan and will suggest ideas for future development. In order to gather information for the Main Issues Report they are calling for people, communities and businesses in Perth and Kinross to tell them what they think are the main issues for the Local Development Plan, and where areas or sites with potential for future development may be found. They would like to hear from you by no later than 31 March.
They would like to point out that for housing sites, they are most interested in receiving information on potential sites in Highland Perthshire, Strathearn and Strathmore Housing Market Areas; there is unlikely to be significant need for additional land in Kinross or Perth Housing Market Areas.
More information on the above, including guidance notes and an electronic form to use when submitting issues and sites, can be found on their website at:
Their Development Plan Scheme outlines the timetable towards adoption of the Local Development Plan, and they will publish and consult on the Main Issues Report in the Autumn.
