ClydePlan_logoClydeplan have recently published for consultation its Proposed Strategic Development Plan and Strategic Environmental Assessment Environment Report.

The Proposed Plan is intended to replace the Glasgow and the Clyde Valley Strategic Development Plan which was approved by Scottish Ministers in May 2012. The Proposed Plan is supported by an Equality Impact Assessment, Habitats Regulations Appraisal, an Action Programme and 14 Background Reports.

The Proposed Plan considers the main spatial planning issues facing the Glasgow and the Clyde Valley city-region since the approval of the first Strategic Development Plan by Scottish Ministers in May 2012 and is based around the four planning outcomes contained in National Planning Framework 3 namely, a Successful and Sustainable Place, a Low Carbon Place, a Natural, Resilient Place and a Connected Place

The consultation period runs from Monday 18th January until Monday 29th February 2016.

The Proposed Plan has also been deposited at every public library in the Glasgow and the Clyde Valley area and is available at the Clydeplan office and the planning offices of the Councils of East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire, Glasgow City, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, Renfrewshire, South Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire.

The Proposed Plan is available for inspection during normal office hours free of charge.
