Development plan

View the development plan

The Angus Local Development Plan (LDP) provides guidance on what and where development will or will not be allowed. It covers housing, employment, retail, transport, recreation and built and natural heritage.

The LDP provides the framework against which planning applications are assessed. The LDP is reviewed every five years. The latest version was adopted in September 2016.

Supplementary guidance

This supports the LDP and is an important consideration in the determination of planning applications.

Preparation and review of the Local Development Plan

The Angus Development Plan Scheme sets out our programme for preparing and reviewing the LDP. The scheme is updated annually.

The Local Development Plan Action Programme identifies policies and proposals required to implement the LDP.

The action programme is continually updated, reflecting the continuous nature of the implementation of the plan. We publish formal updates every two years.
