Local Development Plan

Find out about our Local Development Plan for East Renfrewshire.

The Local Development Plan (LDP2) was adopted on 31 March 2022 and replaced the LDP1 (2015).  The LDP2 sets out the development strategy, key policies and proposals that provide the land use planning framework to guide development in East Renfrewshire up to 2031 and beyond. 

National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4) was adopted by Scottish Ministers on 13 February 2023 and now forms part of the Council's development plan alongside the adopted LDP2. 

All LDP 1 related documents can be viewed in the 'Related media' section on this page and all LDP2 documents can be viewed on the LDP2 page. 

We have commenced the preparation of a new Local Development Plan (LDP3). More information can be found on our LDP3 page

We'd also like to hear your views on our food growing strategy. Our consultation runs from 3 May to 16 June.  Give us your views on our Local Development Plan hub.
