Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2)

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, 1.74mb).

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

North Ayrshire Council has now considered all the representations that we received to the Proposed Plan.

All unresolved representations and the accompanying documents have been submitted to the Scottish Government Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) for examination.

Reporters have now been appointed by the Scottish Ministers to consider whether the plan’s content is appropriate and in the best interests of the area. They will also consider whether consultation on the plan was carried out in accordance with the authority's stated intentions.

Information about the examination will be available on the DPEA website when all the documents have been checked and uploaded.

Representations are summarised and grouped by issue in the schedule 4 documents, a list of which (PDF, 1.33mb), is available for you to view. These also include The Council's response to each matter raised in the representations.

You can also view our Report on Conformity with Participation Statement (PDF, 3.86mb) for information on how The Council has delivered on the consultation commitments made in May 2018.

If you submitted a representation, you do not have to do anything unless the reporter asks you for more information.

During the examination period, The Council has no authority to alter or amend the proposed LDP. This includes responding to matters raised in representations.

As such, Further submissions should not be made to The Council during the examination period.

The following underpins the preparation:
