Our Local Development Plan

National Parks have a slightly different planning remit to other Authorities in Scotland. Our Local Development Plan must adhere to our National Park Partnership Plan.

On this page you can view our Adopted Local Development Plan – along with all other associated documents. The Plan guides new development and contains planning policies which will be used to determine planning applications. It covers the period 2017 until 2026 and will be updated regularly (every five years). This Plan replaces the former Local Plan.

You can view the Plan by downloading the documents below. Hard copies are available at libraries which serve the National Park or our National Park offices in Callander and Balloch.

Accompanying documents

These documents explain in more detail how the policy or strategy requirements of the Plan can be met. Supplementary Guidance forms part of the Plan while Planning Guidance provides wider advice on a range of topics to support the Plan and this list may be expanded in the future.

We are currently in the process of finalising and publishing the guidance following on from the adoption of the plan.  We will replace guidance as and when they are finalised.

How did we get here?

In preparing this Plan we have considered a wide range of information. We invited people from our communities, businesses, landowners and partner organisations to get involved in a series of events, workshops and three formal consultations to help inform this Plan since 2011. Find out how we got here…
