Are you a resident, landowner or business owner in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park? How would you like our towns and villages to look in 5, 10 and 20 years time? We are starting the process of preparing a Local Development Plan and we want to hear from you. Your input is key to us developing a plan that fits with the challenges ahead, while meeting the aspirations of the National Park Authority, our communities, businesses and visitors.
‘Your Park Your Plan’ is a year- long initiative that started in December 2012, focusing on engagement and participation from all with an interest in the National Park. Your input is important from the earliest stage possible and we want to hear what you think are the big issues for planning in our towns and villages. Whether it’s ideas for housing, employment, tourism or economic development, your views are important and really can make a difference to the communities of the National Park.
You can get involved at every stage of the process and our timetable, called the Development Plan Scheme, sets out each stage we go through and exactly how you can input to it.
Stage 1: Call for Sites & Issues
The call for sites & issues closed on 25 February 2013. The Forward Planning team will now assess all of the submissions, report on the conclusions of that process and consider the appropriateness of submissions for inclusion in the Main Issues Report.
There are still ways to get involed in the Local Development Plan Process. For more information you can find regular updates on this page or get in touch with a member of the Forward Planning team on 01389 722600 or by email to
Stage 2: Your Community Your Say
If you live in Aberfoyle, Arrochar & Tarbet, Drymen & Balmaha or Tyndrum, the National Park would like your help in debating the real issues and ideas affecting your community at a series of design-led workshops in March and April 2013.
