Local Development Plan 2

We are now preparing a new Local Development Plan (LDP2), which will replace the current Local Development Plan which was adopted in 2015. 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.

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.
