Local Planning Policies

Most local authorities have rural areas, with some like Highland predominately rural, whilst areas such as Falkirk and Clackmannanshire have small pockets of countryside.

The links below navigate to each local authority’s local plan. The planning system is currently undergoing change with the creation of local development plans in some areas or strategic development plans in "city regions". The changes being made are explained here.
