We are progressing work for a new Local Development Plan (LDP2) for North Ayrshire, which is intended to be adopted in 2019. The plan's preparation timetable is available in our Development Plan Scheme (PDF, 1.77mb).
Proposed Local Development Plan
Our Proposed Local Development Plan (PDF, 17.2mb) was approved on 17 April 2018. View the interactive map to find out more.
Proposed LDP Examination
Scottish Ministers have issued their examination report on the Proposed Local Development Plan, which sets out conclusions on representations submitted to the plan. It also recommends a series of modifications. Those modifications are normally binding on the Council, and work is ongoing to consider modifications and prepare the plan for adoption.
The Local Development Plan Committee will determine whether to adopt the Local Development Plan on 17 September 2019.
