Antonine Wall Supplementary Guidance Consultation

The purpose of this supplementary guidance is intended for use by developers and landowners, the general public and other agencies when seeking to undertake built development.

The Supplementary Guidance will be a material planning consideration in the assessment and determination of planning applications and when giving pre-application advice on proposals that affect the Antonine Wall and its setting.

The revised document, which is being adopted separately by the partner authorities, makes some minor changes to the existing guidance to enable clearer understanding and update the list of resources.

The Antonine Wall runs through five local authority areas across Central Scotland: Falkirk, North Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire, Glasgow and West Dunbartonshire. In July 2008, it was designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, becoming an extension of the trans-national ‘Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site’ which includes Hadrian’s Wall in England and the German Limes. All five authorities have worked together to produce this revised guidance to ensure a consistent approach is adopted when dealing with development across the Wall.

The consultation takes place between Monday 3 April 2023 and Wednesday 17 May 2023 and all interested parties are invited to make comments on the draft Supplementary Guidance. The council will consider any timeous representations made to it on the proposed Supplementary Guidance and, following the conclusion of the consultation period and subsequent assessment of the responses, a report will be submitted to the Planning Committee, prior to approval by the Scottish Government.

You can submit comments by completing the survey below:

Paper copies of the Supplementary Guidance are also available as a reference at the Civic Centre, Motherwell and at each of our libraries.

You can also view the North Lanarkshire Local Development Plan 2022.

Please note -  the reference to Scottish Planning Policy will be replaced in the Supplementary Guidance before the submission to Scottish Government, to be in line with the recently adopted National Planning Framework 4, as it no longer represents Scottish Ministers' planning policy.
