Scottish Government’s Planning and Architecture Division is consulting on Local Place Plans (LLPs), specifically around proposals for regulations.
LPPs offer the opportunity for a community-led, collaborative approach to creating great local places. LPPs can support communities’ aspirations for their future, on the challenges for a future Scotland (such as responding to the global climate emergency and tackling inequalities), and help shape local planning policies and development priorities contained in the Local Development Plan.
LLPs aim to be more than just a plan: they can help communities understand what they want to be like in the future, and for working together with local authorities and others to make positive change happen.
The Planning and Architecture Division has also drafted a “How To” Guide to LLPs (along with an easy-read guide), designed to help communities decide whether a Local Place Plan is the right thing for them, and how to go about preparing one.
They are looking for input from communities and individuals on both the consultation and the “How To” Guide; the deadline for comments on both is Friday 25th June.
