Retail Capacity Assessment and Household Survey Results

As part of the preparation of the Emerging Local Development Plan, it is necessary to obtain an up to date assessment of the capacity for future retail development within East Dunbartonshire.

In September 2013, the Council commissioned Ryden consultants to undertake a Retail Capacity Assessment (RCA) to replace the previous RCA which dates from 2009.

The updated RCA will not only assist in the preparation of relevant policies for the Emerging Local Development Plan, but will also form an important part of the evidence base for development management decisions in relation to retail planning applications.
