The North Lanarkshire Local Development Plan Modified Proposed Plan

The first North Lanarkshire Local Development Plan (The Plan) has been formally submitted for Examination.

The plan was modified to take into account the comments received during its preparation.

Examination phase

We received 404 submissions to the Modified Proposed Plan comprising over 1,100 identifiable contributions, by the time consultation closed in 2019.

We have passed the unresolved objections to the Scottish Government Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) for a Local Development Plan Examination (LDPE).

This will be held by an independently appointed Scottish Government Reporter(s).

The Modified Local Development Plan

The Local Development Plan Modified Proposed Plan (NLLDP Modified Proposed Plan) sets out planning policy that will help guide decisions on planning applications that will shape the future of North Lanarkshire.

By setting out planning policy and by identifying how land in our area is used. For example for housing, or employment use, or for green space.

This Plan aims to deliver sustainable safe communities, to stimulate our economy and to protect our built, historic and natural environment by promoting appropriate development and future growth.
