The Council will prepare regular updates to keep you informed of progress on City Development Plan 2.

It is anticipated that the timescale for the preparation of the next local development plan for Glasgow, Glasgow City Development Plan 2, will evolve in the latter part of 2021 to reflect the changes to the planning system which are anticipated at the national level.

Recent Activity

  • During January - March, the planning department reviewed and responded to the public consultations for National Planning Framework 4 and Local Development Plan Regulations. Please find a copy of our responses under 'Related documents'.
  • General background research.
  • Open Space Strategy (OSS), adopted February 2020 - the Glasgow Open Space Strategy was approved at the City Administration Committee on 6 February 2020.  The OSS is a corporate document that is informed by, and will help deliver, other strategies and plans of the Council, including CDP2.  Amongst other things, it sets out open space standards that will form the basis for CDP2's approach to open space issues and will also inform the production of Supplementary Guidance to support policy CDP6 of the current plan.  The OSS sets in motion the process for establishing a baseline for the city's open space needs over the coming decades.
