Falkirk Local Development Plan 2 Adoption

Falkirk Council announced the adoption of their latest Local Development Plan, the LDP2, on the 7th of August 2020. This Plan, and its supporting documents, replaces the previous Falkirk Local Development Plan from 2015.

LDP2 contains a vision for the area, an overall strategy, and detailed policies and proposals indicating where development should, or should not take place. It provides the criteria which the Council uses in assessing planning applications.

The Council also recently consulted on various Draft Supplementary Guidance that will accompany the Plan, providing more detailed guidance on specific policy areas, such as design guidance, development and trees, and local nature conservation.
