Proposed Strategic Development Plan agreed

February 16th, 2011

AN "AMBITIOUS" plan laying out where development should and should not go in four local council areas for the next 20 years has been backed by councillors. Members of the TAYplan Joint Committee approved the Proposed Strategic Development Plan which sets out a 20 year framework for growth, development and opportunities for the area.

TAYplan, the Strategic Development Planning Authority, was set up in 2008 to create a strategy for the location of major development in Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross and North Fife.

The strategy, which will replace existing council structure plans when it is approved by Scottish Ministers, will set out a framework for growth in the area

Cllr John Beare, current convener of TAYplan said: "This is the stage in preparing the Strategic Development Plan for the region, where we set out our view on where development should generally be and how that should be implemented through all four councils' local development plans.

"The plan is ambitious and is focused on delivering economic growth for the region in a sustainable way”.

It will now be considered by Dundee City, Perth & Kinross, Angus and Fife councils, before the public and anyone interested will be asked whether they support or want to object to any of its aspects.  This is expected to run from June 6 until August 1 this year.

Cllr Beare added: "I would encourage anyone interested in the future of the region to look at the plan, and consider whether they wish to make a response."
