Moray Local Development Plan

Publication of the Proposed Plan is another key milestone in the preparation of the Local Development Plan 2020. The Proposed Plan contains the vision, strategy, policies and site designations that the Council proposes to take forward in its new Local Development Plan (LDP). The Proposed Plan is the ‘settled’ view of the Council and it is intended that this is what the final content of the adopted LDP will be. The Proposed Plan has been issued for a 10 week period of consultation and formal objection to the plan must be received by 15 March 2019. Any objections that are not resolved will be referred to an Examination where a Reporter appointed by Scottish Ministers will preside.

The Local Development Plan Team consulted on its Main Issues Report between January 2018 and March 2018 and received over 400 responses. These have helped inform and shape the policies and land use designations going forward within the Proposed Plan.

Throughout February a series of drop in information events will be held to explain the plan (see locations and dates below). Alternatively more information can be found at
