The City of Edinburgh Council is inviting communities across its area to prepare Local Place Plans in accordance with Schedule 19 of the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019.
A Local Place Plan is an opportunity for communities to think about their local area and develop a plan that sets out the types of changes that they want to see.
It is a new way that communities can really contribute to the planning process as a registered Local Place Plan must be taken into account when the Council prepares City Plan 2040 (the next local development plan after City Plan 2030).
A Local Place Plan lets communities:
· Set out a vision for the future of a place
· Develop proposals for the development and use of land in their area
· Propose changes to planning policy.
There is more information on the Council’s website which explains in more detail what Local Place Plans are, what is involved in preparing one and some resources that might help.
