Issues for the Main Issues Report

A key part of preparing a Main Issues Report is identifying the 'main issues', at both a settlement and policy level. This will enable the preparation of the next Local Development Plan (LDP) to focus on what needs to change, in terms of the policy framework and the scale and location of new development allocations. The Development Plan Scheme notes that the process of identifying ‘issues’ will be supported by the analysis of the existing LDP and engagement with Community Councils, focus groups and other interests. Details of the issues raised and discussed during this engagement can be found below:

Community Council Forum Meetings

An additional presentation was made to Formartine Ellon Ward Community Council on 20 March 2013, but no note was taken.

Stakeholder Forum Meetings

We understand that not everyone has been able to attend our Community Forum meetings or stakeholder meetings so the Policy Team have created an audible version of the presentation given at the meetings. The presentation outlines the LDP process and the timetable for the preparation of the Main Issues Report. Please click on the attached link below:
