It is based on the Place Standard and covers issues including homes, recreation, access, transport, employment, and services.

The results of the survey will inform a number of the councils services and strategies, including: the Local Development Plan, Locality Plans, Open Space Strategy, and Play Sufficiency Assessment. This is a key part of the evidence gathering for the first stage of the Local Development Plan and supports the Call for Evidence consultation which is running at the same time, see the call for evidence consultation for more information.

You can complete the place standard if you are a resident, you work in the area, or a visitor to the area and you wish to let us know how a place can be improved. Community groups with views on particular places may also wish to contribute.

The Survey is open from the 8 July 2024 to the 30 September 2024.

Next Steps

The information and views provided from the Tell us about Your Place survey will be used to create an Evidence Report, which sets out the characteristics and needs of the area. 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.
