Perth and Kinross Proposed Local Development Plan and Environmental Report December 2017

Dates have been set for the Proposed Local Development Plan and Environmental Report consultation from 1 December 2017 until 4 pm on 2 February 2018.

The Proposed Local Development Plan sets out planning policies and identifies development proposals across Perth and Kinross. When adopted, the Local Development Plan will form the basis for determining planning applications and guide future development in the Perth and Kinross area.

All relevant information may be viewed from 1 December at www.pkc.gov.uk/ProposedLDP2

Information will also be available from 1 December at our libraries and community campuses during normal opening hours; and our office at Pullar House, Perth between 8.45am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday (except for the first Thursday in every month when the office opens at 11.00am). Our office will also be closed from 23 December, reopening on 3 January 2018.

Anyone may make representations on the Proposed Local Development Plan. You may send comments to the Local Development Plan Team by using one of the following options:

1. Using our interactive StoryMap – this is an online summary of the Proposed Plan highlighting the main changes proposed for LDP2, with interactive mapping and the ability to comment;

2. By e-mail to LDPConsultation@pkc.gov.uk

3. By post to the Local Development Plan Team at the address at the end of this message.

The last date for representations is 2 February 2018. After this date, there is no provision for those who have made representations to submit further material or make further representations to this Proposed Local Development Plan. Please state in your representation which policy, proposal or part of the Proposed Local Development Plan you wish to change or support; and please explain precisely what changes you would like made together with any reasons you have for requesting the change – and if you would like any assistance with making comments, help will be available online, by phoning or calling in to our office, or from any of our information events in December and January.

Please note that your name, comments and any information you provide will be published online; please be assured personal details such as addresses, signatures, email addresses and telephone numbers will be removed prior to this. Please be aware that you should avoid making personal comments or expressing opinions about others and that comments of this nature will not be published.

Please notify us if you do not want your contact details to be published. Your comments and contact details may be withdrawn upon request by e-mailing developmentplan@pkc.gov.uk. For further information on how the Council collects and uses personal information please visit our website www.pkc.gov.uk/dataprotection, e-mail: dataprotection@pkc.gov.uk or phone 01738 477933.

We will consider and summarise the representations received in respect of the Proposed Plan. The issues raised will be reported to Council, and then considered at a Local Development Plan Examination by an independent, appointed person known as a Reporter. Only comments made between the start and end of the period of representations will be considered by the Reporter. The Reporter will examine the issues raised and make recommendations as to whether the Proposed Plan should be changed before it is adopted.

Comments received in respect of the Environmental Report will be considered separately before finalising.

Further information may be obtained by calling 01738 475300, using our e-mail address or visiting the Council's website.
