Draft Loirston Development Framework

Closed 9 Dec 2019

Opened 11 Nov 2019


The Draft Loirston Development Framework provides a guide for the future development of the Loirston area of the City. The Aberdeen Local Development Plan 2017 has allocated land at Loirston for 1500 homes and 11 hectares of employment land, with associated community facilities.

The development framework document was first produced in 2012 and has been recently updated in order to reflect changes in the local area and reflect current site delivery options. The development at Loirston has a long-term vision and as such there remains a continued and essential need for an up-to-date Framework to guide future development across the whole area.

Why We Are Consulting

The Draft document was approved for public consultation by Members of the Planning and Development Management Committee on 19 September 2019. Everyone has the chance to comment on the draft document, and these comments will shape the content, before it is finalised and reported back to a future meeting of this same Committee in early 2020.



What Happens Next

The finalised document will be reported back to the Council’s Planning and Development Management Committee for consideration in early 2020.
