An important document setting out South Ayrshire Council’s policies for development and land use over the next 5-10 years has been launched.
Marking the first stage of producing an ambitious and far reaching new plan, the Development Plan Scheme (DPS), sets out the different stages for producing the new Local Development Plan (LDP).
It includes a timetable of the process and a lets people know how and when they can get involved in the LDP process.
The Local Development Plan will replace the South Ayrshire Local Plan as the land use plan for the area when it is adopted in 2013.
Wider issues such as roads, drainage, water and how the existing infrastructure will cope with new development demands will also be covered in the Plan.
A programme of consultation will start very shortly and this will engage with the Scottish Government, partner agencies, private sector organisations, community groups and, importantly, the general public, who will be fully encouraged to get involved.
