PROPOSED REPLACEMENT SOUTH AYRSHIRE LOCAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN
I write to notify you that South Ayrshire Council has published a proposed replacement local development plan for South Ayrshire (PLDP2) for public consultation.
PLDP2 is a concise, spatial, land use planning document, which sets out the Council’s settled view of how it envisages South Ayrshire will be developed over the ten year period from its adoption, a revised planning policy framework and a broad indication of the scale and location of growth in the area over a further ten years. When adopted, PLDP2 will supersede the adopted South Ayrshire Local Development Plan (2014) and Town Centre and Retail Local Development Plan (2017), becoming the planning policy framework against which all development proposals will be assessed.
PLDP2 and associated documents, including an Environmental Report, may be viewed (1) in electronic format, on the Council’s website at www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/planning/; or (2) in printed format at (a) all public libraries in South Ayrshire, during normal opening hours, (b) all Council Customer Service Centres, during normal opening hours and (c) Burns House, Burns Statue Square, Ayr, KA7 1UT, between 08:45-16:45, Mondays to Thursdays, and between 08:45-16:00 on Fridays (excluding public holidays). The Environmental Report is only available to view on-line at www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/planning/ or at Burns House during the specified hours.
The Consultation period for PLDP2 and associated Environmental Report will run from 25 September 2019 until 15 November 2019.
