Consultation launched on East Dunbartonshire development plan



East Dunbartonshire Council has announced a consultation on a proposed Local Development Plan.

The Local Development Plan 2 (LDP) will set the future use and protection of land in East Dunbartonshire by establishing where new development should be. It covers issues of housing, transport, town centres and the environment.

The council is carrying out a period of public engagement until February 2019 to help shape this blueprint for development.

A questionnaire is available to allow local people to comment on land use change and planning issues in local communities. A separate ‘call-for-sites’ form is also available for anyone to identify site-specific suggestions for development.

In addition, workshops and information drop-in sessions are scheduled and anyone can attend and give their opinions on the direction for Local Development Plan 2. Officers will be available to answer questions on the process. Workshops will consist of planned activities and exercises for groups of people. Drop-in sessions will be more informal in nature.

Councillor Billy Hendry, convenor of the place, neighbourhood and corporate assets committee, said: “The Local Development Plan is an essential document which guides all aspects of planning and development, from the location of new housing to the layout of town centres.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to make their views known and help shape the future development of our communities.”
