Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2)

North Ayrshire Local Development Plan 2 was adopted on 28 November 2019.

Before adoption of the Plan, Scottish Ministers directed the Council to consider making a change to the Plan. The change updates Policy 29 (page 98), introducing additional text which requires proposals for new buildings, to demonstrate that at least 10% of the current carbon carbon emissions reduction set by Scottish Building Standards will be met through the installation and operation of low and zero carbon generating technologies. 

The Council has made this modification and adopted the Local Development Plan which replaces the previous plan adopted in 2014.  

Intention to adopt the Local Development Plan

On 17 September 2019, the Local Development Plan Committee approved modifications to the Proposed Local Development Plan and agreed to submission of the modified Plan to Scottish Ministers for adoption.

The Proposed Local Development Plan has been modified in line with the recommendations made by Scottish Ministers.
