Proposed Local Development Plan 2020

On this page you can view the Proposed Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2020 and its supporting documents. The purpose of the proposed plan is to address the spatial implications of economic, social and environmental change, identifying opportunities for development and set out policies against which planning applications will be determined. The proposed plan represents the council’s "settled view" as to what the final adopted content of the Local Development Plan should be.

A map-based, interactive Proposed Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan has been created to allow greater and easier interaction with the area’s planning maps and documents. View our interactive online Proposed Local Development Plan.

The consultation period for the Proposed Local Development Plan 2020 is now closed.
