Local Development Plan 3

Find out about the Local Development Plan 3.

We're at the start of preparing a new Local Development Plan (LDP3) for the East Renfrewshire Council area. 

The first stage in the preparation of LDP3 was finding out how communities and other stakeholders want to engage on LDP3 and receive updates. Two surveys were published to gather views, a 'Participation Survey' and a 'Youth Engagement survey'. The surveys were also used as a mechanism to raise awareness of LDP3 and the future timeline for the preparation of the Plan.  

The 'Pre-Engagement Surveys' analysis of responses can be found on our dedicated online  Local Development Plan hub.

The analysis has also informed the Development Plan Scheme (DPS)  and Participation Statement for LDP3.  The DPS set out the stages and programming for preparing the Local Development Plan, what is likely to be involved at each stage, and who will be involved.  

LDP3 Your Place Surveys

We recently asked people who live and work in the area to complete an online 'Your Place' survey to tell us what was good about their places and how they could be better. The survey was based on the Place Standard Tool, the overarching context for place-based working in Scotland and was open for 4 weeks closing on 16 October 2023.

There were a number of different surveys for different groups of people, in order to gather as many views as possible:

Your Place Survey

Your Place Young People Survey (for ages 13 - 25)

Your Place Children's Survey (for ages 5 - 12)

Thank you to everyone who took part, we are extremely grateful for all of your responses and comments made.

We are now reading and collating all the comments we have received and will publish the findings in due course on our LDP3 Hub.
