Welcome to our Main Issues Report 2019 online consultation. 

The Local Development Plan (LDP) contains planning policies and direction for sustainable growth in Aberdeen City. It is a statutory document, with the current Plan adopted in 2017. We are now preparing the next LDP, which we expect to adopt in 2022.

This Main Issues Report is the first stage in producing a revised and updated LDP. The role of the MIR is to stimulate discussion on the main planning issues facing Aberdeen and to suggest possible options for dealing with them.

The Main Issues Report includes 12 Main Issues, and 27 consultation questions for your comment. We have also included the development site assessments and some draft policies as well.

We invite your comments on our Report.

You can download the Main Issues Report here.

Following the consultation period, we will use the responses to write our Proposed Local Development Plan - this is essentially the next LDP in its 'draft' form. We expect to complete this in the next 12 months, and that document will be subject to another public consultation.
