Inverclyde Proposed Local Development Plan Consultation Update

Inverclyde Council have published their Proposed Local Development Plan (2021) (LDP) in the latest stage of their preparation of a new Local Development Plan. This is one of the final phases of the plan-making process and offers the last opportunity for stakeholders and members of the public to provide comments on the Plan through a consultation process following the publication of the Main Issues Report in December 2020.

The Proposed LDP contains the policies and development allocations that Inverclyde Council intends to adopt, which, when adopted, will replace the current LDP. The LDP is the document which sets out the guidelines and principles that will direct development within Inverclyde over the next ten years. The document shows where certain types of development should take place and the policies that apply in specific locations, as well as how development should take place and what will be acceptable.

A number of draft supplementary planning guidance documents have also been published alongside the Proposed LDP.

The current consultation is ongoing until the 9th July 2021 and is open for all interested parties to make submissions related to proposed policies, objectives, or development allocations. This is the final opportunity to provide comment on the plan and the Council will review all consultation responses and make amendments as appropriate before submitting the Plan to the Scottish Government for examination.
