Local Development Plan 3

The third Local Development Plan will direct how West Dunbartonshire will change over the next ten years. It determines how we use land, including land for homes, businesses, services, and open space, as well as the land we want to protect for heritage or nature. The Council is currently gathering information and evidence to inform the Plan, which includes the views of those who live, work and visit West Dunbartonshire and evidence from stakeholders.

Call for Evidence

The Call for evidence survey enables you to provide information and ideas about specific places and topics relevant to the Local Development Plan. The topics are based on the policies within National Planning Framework 4, however you can also provide information about other topics not mentioned. You can also provide information about particular places.

You can contribute to this survey if you have information to help inform the local development plan. You may provide information as links or upload files. This could include information like data, research, reports, or evidence collected as part of a Local Place Plan.

The survey is open to anyone, however is likely of most interest to community groups with specific interests about how land is used in West Dunbartonshire, businesses, land owners, developers, Key Agencies and other organisations.

The survey is open from the 8 July 2024 to the 30 September 2024

Next Steps

The information from the Call for Evidence you provide will be used to create an Evidence Report, which sets out the characteristics and needs of the area and will form the factual basis of the Local Development Plan. Once agreed by the Council, the report will be assessed by the Scottish Government to determine if the Council has enough suitable evidence to begin preparing a Proposed Local Development Plan. Full details of the process can be found in the Development Plan Scheme.
