TAYplan backed by councillors

February 18th, 2015

The plan setting out the overall planning vision for the next 20 years for Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross and North Fife has been backed by councillors.

Members of the TAYplan Joint Committee approved the Proposed Strategic Development Plan which outlines a 20 year framework for growth, development and opportunities for the area.

Cllr Lesley Laird, current convenor of TAYplan said: “The ambitious plan is focused on improving people’s quality of life, supporting wider efforts to generate sustainable economic growth for the region.”

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 will replace the current TAYplan when it is approved by Scottish Ministers.

The proposals will now be considered by Dundee City, Perth & Kinross, Angus and Fife councils. The public and anyone interested will then be asked whether they support or object to any of its aspects.  This is expected to run between 11th May – 3rd July this year.

Cllr Laird added: “The decisions we make today will leave a legacy for future generations.  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.”
