East Ayrshire Council has begun preparation of a new Local Development Plan (LDP2). This ‘Call for Priorities, Issues and Proposals’ is an early opportunity for you to give us your views on what you think should be the priorities of the Plan and which issues we need to address.

It is also an opportunity for individuals, communities, developers and landowners to identify sites which they wish to be included as potential development opportunities for housing or other land uses in the new Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2).

The sites identified as potential development opportunities will be listed in the Main Issues Report (MIR) and be subject to a formal consultation process.

Promoters of sites are advised to provide as much evidence as possible at this stage to justify their site’s inclusion as a preferred option, and allow the planning authority to properly assess the merits of the proposal. 

Please note that as this is a public process, we cannot treat any information submitted as confidential. All sites received shall be assessed but there is no guarantee that they shall be included in LDP2.


The consultation is open until Friday 28 July 2017.
