Development Plan Scheme

The Scottish Government requires all planning authorities to prepare a Development Plan Scheme (DPS) at least annually. 

The purpose of the DPS is to set out the planning authority's programme for preparing and reviewing its Local Development Plan. In particular, it sets out:

  • the proposed timetable, including the proposed month of publication of the Main Issues Report, publication of the Proposed Local Development Plan and its submission to Scottish Ministers
  • any changes or updates to the programme
  • details of what is likely to be involved at each stage of preparation 
  • a Participation Statement outlining when, how and with whom consultation will take place

You can view the current East Dunbartonshire Development Plan Scheme 2017 here.  Alternatively, reference copies of the DPS have been placed in all public libraries within the Council area.
