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.

Under Section 22 of the above Act, planning authorities may adopt and issue guidance in connection with a local development plan, such guidance being referred to as supplementary guidance. Regulation 27 of the above Regulations requires supplementary guidance (SG) to deal only with the provision of further information or detail in respect of the policies or proposals set out in that local development plan. Before adopting supplementary guidance, a planning authority is required to publicise its publication, afford interested persons the opportunity of submitting representations on that guidance and consider any representations duly made before adopting and issuing the guidance.
On the 27 June 2019, South Ayrshire Council approved for publication and public consultation the Proposed Replacement South Ayrshire Local Development Plan 2 (PLDP2) and associated draft Supplementary Guidance: (1) Housing Site Design Briefs; and (2) Maintaining an Effective Housing Land Supply. These draft supplementary guidance documents are linked to PLDP2 Policy: maintaining and protecting land for housing and can only be adopted once LDP2 is adopted. When adopted, the SGs will form part of the adopted local development plan, and have equivalent status in determining planning applications.
The Council is seeking the views of interested parties on the content of the aforementioned draft SGs. PLDP2 is the subject of a parallel consultation process.
The draft SGs may be viewed: (1) in electronic format, on the Council’s website at: www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/planning/; or (2) in print format, at (a) all public libraries and Council Customer Contact Centres in South Ayrshire, during normal opening hours; and (b) at 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 consultation period will run from 25 September 2019 until 15 November 2019.
If you wish to make representations on either draft SG, please do so online, at: www.south-ayrshire.gov.uk/planning/ by 16:00 on 15 November 2019. Comments on SG: Housing Site Design Briefs should be confined to the content of the individual Design Briefs for the proposed housing release sites: comments on the principle of using the proposed release sites for housing should be submitted through the parallel consultation on the PLDP2.
If you require further information, please contact the Development Planning & Customers Team on 01292 616693, during the opening hours for Burns House specified above.
