Planning Guidance

Supplementary Guidance and Planning Guidance are intended to support implementation of the East Dunbartonshire Local Development Plan (LDP). Guidance provides detailed information and practical advice that builds upon the policies within the plan. Guidance can set out what the requirements and implications of the LDP policies are for specific types of development. Guidance can also relate to a particular area such as a Town Centre or a masterplan area.

The relationship between the LDP, Supplementary Guidance and Planning Guidance is established in Scottish Government Circular 6/2013, and is explained in each guidance document in the introduction. The suite of Supplementary and Planning Guidance below has been updated to reflect the preparation of Local Development Plan 2. Further updates during the lifetime of the plan will be undertaken where required.
