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 Angus Plan our next LDP. The scheme is updated annually.

Action programme

The Angus Local Development Plan Action Programme identifies the actions needed to implement the policies and proposals of the LDP.

Implementation of the Plan is a continuous process. The action programme is monitored regularly with a formal update published every two years until the Plan is replaced. The latest Action Programme was published in December 2020.
