Proposed Local Development Plan 2 – Historic Environment Designations Review

Representation Period – 15 January to 31 May 2021

East Dunbartonshire Council's Proposed Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) was published for a public representation period, from 19 October 2020 to 15 January 2021. The LDP2 includes Policy 19 Historic Environment which states:

"The special qualities and boundaries of the Conservation Areas and Townscape Protection Areas" and "The historic environment value and boundaries of the Locally Important Gardens and Designed Landscapes are part of a review of Local Historic Environment Designations. The Plan will be updated in line with the findings of this review."

Historic environment specialist Land Use Consultants was commissioned to carry out the Historic Environment Designations Review and has now produced documents setting out the technical findings.

Members of the public are invited to comment on the content of these documents during a consultation period, between 15 January and 31 May 2021

The consultation aims to

  • Inform the public and stakeholders of the technical findings of the review, set out in both the Designation Review Reports - Conservation Area Boundaries and Townscape Protection Areas, and Local Gardens and Designed Landscapes
  • Gather comments on the above documents
  • Provide eight Conservation Area Appraisals, for areas where no boundary changes are proposed, for information and comment.

The following documents are now available for public consultation:

  1. Designation Review Report –  Conservation Area Boundaries and Townscape Protection Areas
  2. Designation Review Report – Locally Important Gardens and Designed Landscape
  3. An introduction to Conservation Areas
  4. Conservation Area Appraisals - Baldernock; Old Bearsden; Cadder, Bishopbriggs; Clachan of Campsie; Central Kirkintilloch; Milngavie Reservoirs; Tannoch, Milngavie; Westerton.
