Local Development Plan 2023

Once in every five years we are required to publish a new plan for the area, excluding the Cairngorms National Park. This is to inform and advise developers and communities on the principles that built development should follow and where it should be located.  Having been through an extensive period of consultation, including the publication of a Main Issues Report and a Proposed Local Development Plan, the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2023 was formally adopted on 13th January 2023.

The Local Development Plan 2023 has been written to accord with the National Planning Framework 3, and be consistent with the Aberdeen City and Shire Strategic Development Plan 2020.

Every year, we publish a Development Plan Scheme which sets out the programme for the delivery of the Local Development Plan.
