SESplan, the Strategic Development Planning Authority for South East Scotland, has prepared a new Proposed Strategic Development Plan. The Proposed Strategic Development Plan sets out a vision, broad development patterns and levels of growth for the city region over a 20 year period from 2018.

It is intended that the plan will replace the current Strategic Development Plan in 2018 and will inform the next set of Local Development Plans in the future. The Proposed Strategic Development Plan is based on the options in, and responses to, the 2015 Main Issues Report.

The Proposed Strategic Development Plan, the Environmental Report and other supporting documents are available to view on the SESplan website: www.sesplan.gov.uk

The formal period of representations on the Proposed Strategic Development Plan will start on 13 October and run until 5pm on Thursday 24 November 2016. During this period anyone will be able to submit representations using the SESplan Consultation Portal:  Continue reading
