Local people urged to share their views on Main Issues Report

Posted on 7 Feb 2017

The Council is urging North Ayrshire residents to have their say on helping shape key planning issues in their local area, including sites and locations where there could be potential new development.

This week, North Ayrshire Council published its Main Issues Report (MIR) which sets out options for change on key areas of planning policy and it is intended to generate discussions on local planning issues, including possible new development locations.

Local communities and businesses are being encouraged to have their say by completing the survey.

People will also have the opportunity to attend the consultation events which will take place over the next few weeks.

Dates for consultation events:

There will be a number of evening consulation events during the Locality Planning Partnership meetings throughout March.

The consultation responses will help the Council prepare a Proposed Local Development Plan, which will address the matters included in the Main Issues Report.  The Proposed Local Development Plan is due to be published in December 2017.

Councillor Alex Gallagher, Cabinet Member for Economy, said:  “Our Local Development Plan sets out a long term vision for growth, it will identify land and infrastructure for new homes and for businesses to locate and expand. I would encourage everyone to get involved by completing the online survey and attending the consultation events to help shape North Ayrshire’s future.”
