Adopted Local Development Plan

North Ayrshire Council adopted a new Local Development Plan, on 28 November 2019. 

View an interactive map version of our new Local Development Plan. A Storymap presentation of the plan is also available for viewing. 

The Local Development Plan (LDP) sets out how we aim to guide development and investment in our area over the next 20 years and includes:

  • Our spatial development strategy: the principles we will use to direct the right development to the right place.
  • Our placemaking policy: the key criteria that will allow us to deliver the six qualities of successful places.
  • Our strategic development areas and the key factors we will consider in developing these major areas of change

Detailed policies provide additional criteria and more detail about how we will consider proposals for specific uses or developments.

The Local Development Plan is supported by by Planning Guidance.
