Closed 30 Jan 2017

Opened 16 Dec 2016


This consultation asks for your input to a number of Proposed Supplementary Guidance documents to accompany the Aberdeen Local Development Plan 2017.  As part of the Local Development Plan,  Supplementary Guidance provide certainty for the public, development industry and businesses in Aberdeen as to where and what kind of development will take place.

This consultation includes 45 individual pieces of Proposed Supplementary Guidance, copies of all of which can be found below.  Of the 45 documents, 27 are pieces of Policy Supplementary Guidance, and 18 are pieces of Site Specific Supplementary Guidance.

Why your views matter

The Local Development Plan is a vital public document which shapes the future of Aberdeen, and influences significant public and private investment in homes, businesses, shops, infrastructure and facilities.

Local Development Plans and their associated statutory Supplementary Guidance have to be replaced at least every 5 years.  Supplementary Guidance can be adopted in connection with a Local Development Plan to provide more detailed planning policy guidance.  In order to adopt Supplementary Guidance documents, a statutory public consultation exercise is required.



What happens next

Officers will report the results of this public consultation, and any proposed revisions to the documents, to Council Members in Spring 2017.  Officers will also ask for approval to send the revised documents to the Scottish Government for their ratification to become adopted Supplementary Guidance.  This formal adoption will likely be in mid-2017.
