What is it?

Glasgow City Development Plan was adopted on 29 March 2017. The new local development plan replaces Glasgow City Plan 2 (2009). It sets out the Council's land use strategy and provides the basis for assessing planning applications.

Glasgow City Development Plan should be read in conjunction with the Glasgow and the Clyde Valley Strategic Development Plan and relevant statutory supplementary guidance.

Copies of the plan can be downloaded from the council's website and are available to view in the local libraries.

Development Plan Scheme

The Planning etc. (Scotland) Act 2006 requires Local Authorities to publish an annual Development Plan Scheme. The Development Plan Scheme sets out the programme for preparing and reviewing the City Development Plan.

This document is published to enable stakeholders to gain an awareness of the CDP preparation process and how and when they can engage with the process.

Action Programme

The Action Programme is a list of all the actions (proposals, policies etc) that are identified in the Plan. It details who has responsibility to carry out the actions and the timescale for the action.

Mapping has been prepared to illustrate the distribution of actions.

Previous Local Development Plan Stages

Details of the development plan process can be found below along with the various documents which have been produced throughout the preparation process.
