Con­sul­ta­tion helps shape lo­cal plan

Ar­ran res­i­dents have been voic­ing their opin­ion as part of a re­gion-wide con­sul­ta­tion on North Ayr­shire Coun­cil’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ment plans.

At a pub­lic meet­ing at the Or­mi­dale Pav­il­ion on Tues­day, res­i­dents, busi­ness own­ers and those with an in­ter­est in lo­cal de­vel­op­ment met with strate­gic plan­ning man­ager Neale McIl­van­ney and plan­ning of­fi­cers Neil McAleer and Joanna Glacken.

Pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion on the pro­posed Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Plan – which sets out how the coun­cil will guide de­vel­op­ment and in­vest­ment in the area over the next 20 years – the plan­ners pro­vided vis­i­tors with de­tails on how their con­tri­bu­tions can be lodged to be con­sid­ered when fi­nal­is­ing the doc­u­ment.

Once the con­sul­ta­tion pe­riod is com­plete, the pro­posed plan is passed to Scot­tish min­is­ters for ex­am­i­na­tion. A re­porter is then ap­pointed who pub- lishes a re­port of the find­ings and out­lines whether any changes are re­quired.

The pro­posed Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Plan is then adopted and be­comes the le­gal doc­u­ment con­sulted when con­sid­er­ing plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tions in North Ayr­shire.
