LDP2 Supplementary Guidance
Supplementary guidance documents provide much more detail than is possible to include in Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) and can be updated without having to wait for a new LDP to be produced. These adopted supplementary guidance documents all directly relate to a policy in LDP2 and have the same weight as the Plan in the decision making process.
Following the Economy and Resources Committee on 15 June 2021 a draft supplementary guidance on Sustainability - Reducing Carbon Emissions in Buildings was approved for a 6 week public consultation which ran between 25 June and 9 August 2021. Comments relating to the guidance were considered and taken back to the Economy and Resources Committee on 14 September 2021. The below guidance was approved for adoption subject to a 28-day consideration period by Scottish Ministers. This page will be updated once the guidance becomes adopted.
Planning guidance provides detail on a range of subject areas. Unlike supplementary guidance it does not form part of LDP2 but once adopted by the Council it may be a material consideration in the decision making process. One of the benefits of planning guidance is that it can be updated very quickly and can be prepared if a new issue arises which does not have an appropriate link in the plan to allow the production of supplementary guidance.
The following list of documents were either supplementary guidance or planning guidance to the first LDP. This list was reported to the November 2019 Economy and Resources Committee for adoption at the same time as the various pieces of supplementarty guidance listed above.
