A briefing on the Local Development Plan process was held at Waverley Court on Thursday 27 February.
Here’s the presentation from that briefing: Leith CC Briefing 270214
Edinburgh’s housing requirement is set through the Strategic Development Plan (SDP). In approving the SDP in June 2013, Scottish Ministers significantly increased the housing requirement.
A revised Local Development Plan (LDP) is needed to identify sites to meet the SDP’s housing requirement. The revised LDP is due to be considered by the Planning Committee on 15 May. Information was provided on the work involved in the preparation of the revised LDP.
Information was also provided on current planning applications/Planning Application Notices for housing on greenfield sites and other issues raised in representations of particular relevance to Leith.
The final part of the presentation provided the context for discussion on how the Council can help Community Councils and Groups prepare for the representation stage for the revised LDP which will run for 10 weeks from end of June.
