Emerging Local Development Plan

East Dunbartonshire Council is in the process of preparing a new Local Development Plan (LDP) for the area, which will replace the Local Plan 2. It is expected that the LDP will be adopted in 2016 and will be updated every five years thereafter. The LDP will guide the future use of land, set out proposals for development and provide the framework for dealing with planning applications.

If you would like to receive our regular "Newsletter", which includes details of the preparation of the LDP please email the policy team at development.plan@eastdunbarton.gov.uk or call 0141 578 8600.

The first step, in the production of the LDP is to publish a Main Issues Report (MIR), the purpose of which will be to identify the key changes which have taken place since the Local Plan 2 was prepared, whilst gaining an understanding of the key planning issues and development priorities that need to be addressed.  The main Issues Report Consultation is now live.  More information can be found on the Main Issues Report page. 
The following work has been carried out to inform the preparation of the MIR.

Housing Land Supply Workshops 

Consensus has emerged through the Initial Publicity and Engagement that there is an unmet need for quality affordable housing within the area. The Glasgow and Clyde Valley Strategic Development Plan and East Dunbartonshire Local Housing Strategy have confirmed that there is a significant shortfall in the level in East Dunbartonshire for affordable and private housing. In the earlier stages of engagement, a number of sites for housing were suggested by various participants in order to contribute to meeting these requirements (reproduced below). To assist with the process involved in assessing the suitability of these sites to meet the shortfall, the Development and Enterprise Policy Team held a series of workshops:

Initial Publicity and Engagement

Initial publicity and engagement with wider stakeholders was carried out in November and December 2011, as part of the preparation for the LDP MIR. This included a pre-MIR workshop and questionnaire exercise, and the themes emerging from this will form an input to the MIR. A summary of the findings of this initial publicity and engagement is included here:
