East Lothian Local Development Plan - Affordable Housing Quota and Tenure Mix

Closed 7 Nov 2016

Opened 19 Sep 2016


The Council has published its proposed East Lothian Local Development Plan (LDP). This is the Council’s settled view as to what the final adopted content of the Local Development Plan for the area should be. The proposed plan 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. The plan is currently out for representation (see consultation links below).

This consultation is on the proposed Affordable Housing Quota and Tenure Mix supplementary planning guidance, one of a range of supporting documents. The document has been prepared to give further guidance on the application of policy towards affordable housing contained in the Proposed Local Development Plan.  

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

Alternatively, comments can be submitted via email to: hsd@eastlothian.gov.uk, or by post to: Wendy McGuire, Team Manager, Investment and Regeneration, East Lothian Council, Brewery Park, Haddington EH41 3HA.
