Local Development Plan 2: Main Issues Report
The Main Issues Report is the first stage in the preparation of a new Local Development Plan for West Dunbartonshire. The Main Issues Report sets out the main changes and issues that have emerged since the Local Development Plan (Proposed Plan) 2016 was approved.
The Main Issues Report is not a policy document. It is a consultation document at an early stage in the Local Development Plan 2 process, which offers a genuine opportunity for the community and other interested parties or individuals to help shape the future development of West Dunbartonshire. It does this by setting out the Council's preferred and alternative options for development and other land uses issues across West Dunbartonshire and inviting views on these options and alternatives.
The Main Issues Report was approved by Planning Committee on 26 April 2017 and is being consulted upon between 30th June 2017 and 22nd September 2017. The Main Issues Report can be found below:
