Did you know that East Lothian Council is putting together a 10 year strategy to develop our area, called a Local Development Plan?
The communities of East Lammermuir now have the opportunity to influence that LDP with our own Local Place Plans. But we must do it now! We must submit any LPPs by October this year.
- Local Place Plans are a new type of plan (introduced by the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019) giving communities the opportunity to create proposals for the development and use of land in their place, enabling communities to focus on their aspirations as well as their needs.
- While Local Place Plans may touch upon any issue that relates to a particular place, the core focus should be on the development and use of land, for example, housing land allocation or the design of new public green space
- You can see general guidance about Local Place Plans here: https://www.pas.org.uk/what-we-do/community-led-plans/
There are two ways that you give your input to our Local Place Plan…
Please please please, fill in ELCC’s Local Place Plan survey here: www.bit.ly/ELCC-LLP This is where you can put all your ideas for the local area down on ‘paper’. (Actual paper copies are available!)
Alternatively, (or additionally!) please come along to one of the public discussion sessions, detailed in the leaflet below.
This is an important opportunity to influence the major developments that we are going to see in the coming years. Please share this widely – it’s open to all!
