New Development Plan

Under the 2006 planning reforms, Local Authorities are required to produce a new kind of Development Plan. In Aberdeenshire, this consists of a Local Development Plan (LDP) for Aberdeenshire and a Strategic Development Plan (SDP) called “Aberdeen City and Shire Strategic Development Plan”. The SDP covers the administrative areas of Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire councils (but does not include the part of Aberdeenshire in the Cairngorms National Park).

For more information see our information sheet about the development plan and how to get involved,
