West Lothian invites views on proposed LDP

West Lothian invites views on proposed LDP

A series of informal events will take place across West Lothian in October to start the process of preparing a new local development plan (LDP).

Council planning officers will be hosting a number of ‘We Need to Talk About LDP 2 - The Next West Lothian Local Development Plan’ sessions at a range of venues across West Lothian.

Anyone who lives or works in West Lothian and wants to share their views on their priorities for development in the future is invited to attend an event.

This is the first phase of the process to replace the current LDP, with the aim of having a new plan adopted by 2026.

LDPs are intended to provide the vision and land use strategy for how communities will grow and develop in the future. They also show communities and prospective investors where and how new development should take place, as well as identifying areas that should be protected.

A West Lothian Council spokesperson said: “We hope that anyone with views on the next local development plan will come along and share them with us at one of the events.

“The events will be informal and there will be no presentations. The purpose is to provide an opportunity to have conversations with the planning officers who will be preparing the next LDP and to identify important key issues.

“We hope to gather views and suggestions from as many West Lothian residents as possible so that we can better understand where their priorities lie and which can help inform the new plan.”
