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.

The Proposed Local Development represents the final opportunity for you to shape the future of your community and ensure development is directed to the right place for the period 2021-2031 and comment on those areas where policy change might be required.

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 runs from 25th May to 31st July 2020. Find out how to respond.
