The proposed pdf icon Local Development Plan 2 [5Mb] (LDP2), pdf icon proposals map [8Mb], pdf icon environmental report [2Mb], action programme and other accompanying documents have been published for an 8 week consultation, which will run until Friday 13 December 2019.

We've prepared an online story map, which provides an interactive method to view and read the proposed Local Development Plan 2. The story map also comprises a response form for you to submit comments on the proposed plan or one of the accompanying documents.

The proposed Local Development Plan 2 sets out the development strategy, key policies and proposals which provide the land use planning framework to guide development in East Renfrewshire up to 2029. 

The Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) includes the likely significant effects that the proposed Local Development Plan 2 may have on the environment.

Work on reviewing our existing Local Development Plan (LDP1) (2015) began in 2016. Comments received from the earlier Main Issues Report (MIR) (2016) stage have informed the proposed plan. The full timetable and stages for the plan's preparation are set out in our pdf icon Development Plan Scheme. [2Mb] 

The proposed plan is supported by a number of accompanying documents: 

We've also prepared an easy to read pdf icon summary [543kb] of the proposed plan.

All documents can also be viewed at council offices and local libraries.

How can I submit my comments on the proposed LDP2? 

Representations will be accepted up to and including Friday 13 December 2019. 

To submit a comment, please:

Strategy team
Council Offices
2 Spiersbridge Way
Spiersbridge Business Park
G46 8NG

Further guidance on submitting comments is shown in the response forms.

We'd ask that you also complete the word icon equalities questionnaire [42kb].

What happens next?

Following the close of the consultation, comments received will be taken into consideration prior to the proposed Local Development Plan 2 being submitted to the Scottish Government for independent examination.

The reporter will examine any outstanding objections to the plan and make a series of binding recommendations to us.
