Local Place Plans are community led plans providing proposals for the development and use of land. Introduced by the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019 these plans will set out a community’s aspirations for its future development.

Why your views matter

Whilst the bulk of provisions for Local Place Plans are to be found within the changes in the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019 to the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997, this left a number matters to secondary legislation. We wish to consult on these matters which relate to the preparation, content, submission and registration of Local Place Plans.

What happens next

Your response to this consultation will inform the Government’s development of regulations plus associated guidance. We plan to lay the regulations in Parliament later this year. We will publish an independent analysis of responses as soon as practicable.
