Local Development Plan 2

We adopted the current Argyll and Bute Local Development Plan in March 2015.

We are now preparing a new Local Development Plan (LDP2), which will set out planning and development proposals for the next 10 years from 2020 and a vision for 20 years.  The plan will cover all of the Argyll and Bute Council area, apart from the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Area (LLTNP), where a separate Local Development Plan is prepared by the National Park Authority.

Local Development Plan 2 is due for adoption in 2020.

The first stage of the LDP2 process was the Main Issues Report.

The report sets out, through a series of questions, how the proposed new Local Development Plan 2 might differ from the existing Local Development Plan and asked people’s views on those proposals.

We ran an 8 week consultation on the Main Issues Report between 16th October and 11th December 2017. The consultation has now closed. Thank you to all those who have responded.

You can still view the Main Issues Report either by using the online storymap (recommended) or by downloading a PDF version of Main Issues Report (pdf 20mb) but please note the consultation has now closed.

Supporting documents
The Main Issues Report is also accompanied by the following supporting documents:

Monitoring Report (pdf 5mb)

Strategic Environmental Assessment: Environmental Report (pdf 4mb)

Equalities Impact Assessment (pdf 0.3mb)

The next stage of the Local Development Plan 2 process will be production and publication of the Proposed Local Development for consultation. More details of this will be posted on this page in due course.



Development Plan Scheme

The Development Plan Scheme sets out the Council’s programme for preparing the replacement Local Development Plan. This is the first update of the Development Plan Scheme setting out the programme for the replacement Local Development Plan, which will be called LDP2. It sets out key milestones in the LDP2 process and how people can become engaged at those stages. It also provides a timetable that will deliver LDP2 within the required 5 year period from adoption of the current Local Development Plan.
