June 6th, 2016

Cllr Tom Gray, TAYplan convener said: “I am delighted that the hard work and efforts of a great number of people has brought the plan to the stage of submission to Ministers.”

“I particularly welcome the ever-increasing engagement of our younger generations in the strategic planning process and wish to congratulate and thank all schools and students involved for their enthusiasm and valued input toward the future development of the TAYplan area.”

“Ministers will now independently consider the issues arising from the representations made by many local people, developers and other interested parties on the proposed plan.”

TAYplan Joint Committee concluded in February 2016 that it wished to make no modifications to the Proposed Strategic Development Plan and agreed to submit it to the Scottish Government.


Set up in 2008, TAYplan, the Strategic Development Planning Authority, is creating a strategy for major building work in Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross and North/East Fife. Its joint committee is made up of three councillors from the four constituent local authorities.

It focuses on sustainable economic growth, shaping better quality places, quality of life, climate change and consumption of resources

TAYplan's vision is that by 2036 the region will be sustainable, more attractive, competitive and vibrant without creating an unacceptable burden on our planet. The quality of life will make it a place of first choice where more people choose to live, work and visit, and where businesses choose to invest and create jobs.


Copies of the Proposed Plan are available in all public libraries across the TAYplan area and online at: www.tayplan-sdpa.gov.uk/publications  

More information related on the next stages of the process is available is available from the Planning and Environmental Appeals Division section of the Scottish Government’s website http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Built-Environment/planning/Appeals/whatwedo/devplanexaminations
