What is it?

Glasgow's City Development Plan was adopted in March 2017, replacing City Plan 2 (2009). The Plan sets out the Council's vision and strategy for land use whilst also providing the basis for assessing planning applications along with its associated Supplementary Guidance.

The Plan is supported by a number of documents including Background Papers, Environmental Report, Habitat Regulations Appraisal, and a Schedule of Land. These can all be found here.

Copies of the plan can be downloaded from the council's website and are available to view in the local libraries.

Development Plan Scheme

The Planning (Scotland) Act 2019 requires all local authorities to publish annual Development Plan Schemes that set out the work programme for creating a Local Development Plan. The purpose of a Development Plan Scheme is to enable stakeholders to gain an awareness of the plan preparation process and explains how and when they can get involved. 

The latest Development Plan Scheme for 2023 is available to view here. It sets out the new planning context and how we will go about producing City Development Plan 2.

This year the Council has included a short survey with the document which will be open for 6 weeks from August 16th - September 27th, 2023. Interested parties are encouraged to read the Development Plan Scheme and take the survey which will help the Council plan its engagement programme for City Development Plan 2.

Delivery Programme

The Delivery Programme sets out the actions required to support the implementation of the Plan. It details who has responsibility to carry out the actions and the timescale for the action.

Mapping is available (see 'Related links') to illustrate the spatial distribution of actions across the City.
