Clackmannanshire Council is seeking representations on its Proposed Local Development Plan (LDP), which sets out the Council's proposed vision for future development in Clackmannanshire: the policies it wishes to adopt, and the sites and projects it wishes to promote and support.

We are also seeking comments on the Supplementary Guidance that accompanies the Proposed LDP; the Open Space Strategy; strategic environmental assessment Environmental Reports for these documents; Habitats Regulations Appraisal for for the Proposed LDP; and the Muckhart Conservation Area Appraisal.

On-line version of the Local Development Plan is available via http://eplanning.clacksweb.org.uk/oldp-web/docSelectAction.do?docId=108

Why your views matter

Consultation on the Proposed Local Development Plan is in accordance with the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997, as amended by the Planning etc. (Scotland) Act 2006.  Consultation on the Supplementary Guidance, Open Space Strategy, and Environmental Reports is in accordance with the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005.

What happens next

Following the conclusion of the period for representations, the Council will need to take a view on each representation and prepare a response. Any outstanding representations which cannot be resolved will require to be considered through an Examination led by a Reporter appointed by the Scottish Government. Once the Examination is complete, the Reporter will prepare a report setting out their findings and giving reasons for their conclusions. The Council will then be required to amend the LDP in line with the findings of the Report, in all but very limited exceptional circumstances. The Council will then have to amend the LDP in accordance with the Reporter's findings and proceed to adopt it.
