Welcome to TAYplan
TAYplan's Strategic Development Plan 2012-2032
Your place/Your future/Your say
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.
Before we start to review the Plan we want to ask people what key issues should the next TAYplan focus on and what big projects would people like to see happen in the area.
This early stage of engagement has commenced and will conclude on 11th June 2013. To complete the questionnaire(s) online go to http://tayplan-sdpa-consult.limehouse.co.uk/portal and login or register.
This engagement will assist TAYplan in preparing the Main Issues Report, with publication around May 2014. Consultation will follow and that will be the main stage where people are asked for their views.
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. These are all at different stages of preparation and review, reflecting the need to have plans which respond to constant change.
Engaging with communities, public agencies, the development industry and others continues to be central to how TAYplan develops it's plan.
