Consultation on the proposed Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) and accompanying documents has now closed. We wish to thank everyone who submitted representations.

A report summarising the representations received and the Councils response will be reported to Full Council prior to the proposed LDP2 being submitted to the Scottish Government for independent examination.

The reporter will examine any outstanding objections to the plan and make a series of binding recommendations to us.

Proposed LDP2

The proposed  Local development plan 2 [5Mb] (LDP2) and proposals map [8Mb], sets out the development strategy, key policies and proposals which provide the land use planning framework to guide development in East Renfrewshire up to 2029. An online story map also provides an interactive method to view and read the proposed LDP2.

The strategic environmental assessment (SEA) includes the likely significant effects that the proposed LDP2 may have on the environment.

Work on reviewing our existing local development plan (LDP1) began in 2016. Comments received from the earlier pdf icon main issues report (MIR) [1Mb] stage have informed the proposed plan. The full timetable and stages for the plan's preparation are set out in our pdf icon development plan scheme. [2Mb] 

The proposed plan is supported by a number of accompanying documents: 

All documents can also be viewed at council offices and local libraries.
