Local Place Plans were introduced as part of the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019. They offer the opportunity for a community-led, collaborative approach to creating great local places.
Local Place Plans set out proposals for the development and use of land. The aim is to significantly enhance engagement in development planning, effectively empowering communities to play a proactive role in defining the future of their places.
It is important that communities have the chance to participate in all parts of the planning system ranging from Local Development Plans, National Planning Frameworks and of course Planning Applications put forward in their area.
Local Place Plans are not intended to replace existing engagement opportunities, but instead to compliment and be provided alongside them. They present an opportunity to proactively look ahead in setting out the community's ideas for the future.
Local Place Plans must be prepared by - or on behalf of - a 'community-controlled body', as defined by the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015. Preparing a Local Place Plan should be collaborative - involving as many people and organisations as possible.
