Welcome to TAYplan
TAYplan's Strategic Development Plan
Your Place/Your Future/Your Say
Reviewing the Plan
Change is constant and planning must be constant too. If you care about your city, town, neighbourhood or village, TAYplan matters to you. That's because TAYplan sets the overall direction for how the TAYplan area will change over the next 20 years - what major developments can take place, where, and what they should be like.
The first main stage of the review is the Main Issues Report (to view click here) which was approved by the TAYplan Joint Committee on 25th February 2014 (to view committee papers click here) and is now being considered by the 4 constituent Councils. The Main Issues Report sets out what the key issues are together with preferred options for how the plan could change. Consultation on the Main Issues Report is proposed from 15th April until 27th June 2014. 8 community events, community council/elected member briefings and events with young people are proposed (click here for details).
TAYplan provides broad-brush direction for the next 20 years about where new development and infrastructure should take place. The current Strategic Development Plan was approved in June 2012 and the Plan is constantly reviewed. The 4 Local Authorities in the TAYplan area have their own Local Development Plan which shows the detail of what development should take place for the next ten years and they must reflect the TAYplan strategy.
Would you like to be a TAYplan Young Placemaker?
TAYplan is looking for inspirational youth ambassadors as TAYplan Young Placemakers. Their role is to inspire their peers to think about places where they live and play, as well as the future planning of their communities. The scheme with Planning Aid for Scotland is designed to encourage and empower young people to become involved in 'shaping their places' at a local level. Young Placemakers also have a key role as ambassadors for inter-generational change. Click here for more information.
