Glasgow City Development Plan 2



Contact Development Plan

What is it?

Work has commenced on a new local development plan for Glasgow (Glasgow City Development Plan 2 (CDP2)).

It is anticipated that the timescale for the production of CDP2 will emerge during the course of 2020 to reflect the changes to the planning system which are emerging at the national level through planning reforms.

Production of CDP2 has been delayed until revised Development Planning Regulations have been produced in order to allow the new plan to align with emerging NPF4 policy priorities, the strategic context set out by the indicative Regional Spatial Strategy and other relevant strategies and outputs.

The CDP2 timescale will be reflected in future updates of the Development Plan Scheme.

It is not anticipated that there will be a major shift in the policy approach within CDP2. The strategic aims and spatial strategy of the new Plan are likely to place similar emphasis on placemaking and sustainable regeneration, as set out in the current adopted Plan.

Further details on early CDP2 activities can be found below:

CDP2 Early Activities

  • Early engagement with key statutory and non-statutory agencies to explore common challenges and opportunities.
  • Preparatory work on a comprehensive community engagement exercise, which will use the National Place Standard as the basis for communities to input towards new Plan priorities.
  • General background research to aid the new Plan preparation process. A series of Background Papers will be published online in due course.
  • An early public Call for Sites exercise aimed at identifying potential new sites for development, alternative use or protection (January 2019). All submissions received will be retained and reviewed and there will be further opportunity to submit new sites, given the time period that has elapsed since the original Call for Sites exercise. All sites put forward will be subject to strategic environmental assessment and a wider planning assessment as part of the plan preparation process.
  • The adoption of Glasgow's Open Space Strategy
