Proposed Local Development Plan - 2021

On 17 May 2021, Inverclyde Council published its Proposed Local Development Plan. The consultation period ran until 9 July 2021 and is now closed. The representation received are being considered and will be reported to a meeting of the Council’s Environment and Regeneration Committee in due course. If the representations raise any issues that cannot be resolved the Proposed Plan and the relevant representations will be submitted to the Scottish Ministers for Examination.

It was hoped to take the Proposed LDP 2021 through to adoption under the 2006 Planning (Scotland) Act but the cut-off point to continue the plan through this Act was missed. The document is, however, still a material consideration in determining planning applications.
From 2024 work will be carried out on preparing a new LDP
