East Lothian Local Development Plan 2018 Proposed Supplementary Planning Guidance - Development Briefs

Closed 20 Jul 2018

Opened 8 Jun 2018


East Lothian Council, at its meeting on 29th May 2018, approved the East Lothian Local Development Plan 2018 (ELLDP 2018) for adoption. The Council has now submitted the ELLDP 2018 to Scottish Ministers stating our intention to adopt the plan for the area. The ELLDP 2018 comprises a development strategy for the future development of East Lothian to 2024 and beyond, a detailed policy framework for guiding development, and proposals maps. It sets out where new development should and should not occur, including new housing, education, economic and retail development, new transport links, and other infrastructure.

This consultation is on the proposed Development Briefs Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG), part of a range of documents that would (if approved) support the ELLDP 2018 during its operation (see relevant document links below). These proposed Development Briefs have been prepared for some of the sites contained in the ELLDP 2018, and these will help to shape development on those sites and assist with decision making on planning applications.   

Your views are now sought on the content of these Development Briefs.  These will be considered by the planning authority before the Development Briefs are finalised.   

Comments can be made by completing the online survey (see below).

Alternatively, comments can be submitted via email to: ldp@eastlothian.gov.uk, or by post to: Policy & Strategy Team, East Lothian Council, Brewery Park, Haddington EH41 3HA. 

Comments made via email or post must be received at the office of the Planning Authority by no later than 5pm on Friday 20th July 2018.
