It has been confirmed to us that Dundee City Council has commenced work towards preparing a Local Development Plan which will in time replace the adopted Dundee Local Plan Review 2005.
The Local Development Plan will set out the strategy which will guide future development of the city for a period of 5 years and provide broad indications of growth for up to 10 years in the future. The plan will also contain policies and proposals covering the principal land use issues in the city and when adopted will be the principal consideration in the determination of planning applications.
The council are undertaking a consultation exercise on the plan and are inviting comments to be submitted to them before 8th October 2010.
Any of our clients who are landowners or have an interest in land in Dundee and who want to promote it for development should consider contacting Shaun Mackintosh who heads Blackadders’ Planning team. Shaun would be happy to advise on the way forward for promotion of any site with the council. Shaun can be contacted on 01382 229222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
