The modified local development plan consultation is now closed and we are unable to accept any further submissions.

What happens next?

The Council will categorise all submissions and pass them to the Scottish Government Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) for a Local Development Plan Examination (LDPE) to be held, where an independently appointed Scottish Government Reporter will consider unresolved formal objections.  There is a presumption that oral evidence will take the form of a Hearing.  If you have opted to present your views at the LDPE, you may be invited to present your case in person or through an agent. However, it is up to the Reporters to decide whether or not any Hearings will be required, what form these will take, and who should be invited to attend.  If invited to attend the LDPE to give evidence, you must provide the necessary copies of your formal objection and supporting information.

If you have opted for your formal objection to be dealt with as a written submission, you need not attend the LDPE as your response can be considered by Written Representations.

What Will Happen To Your Submission (Formal Objection or Representation of Support)

You will receive an acknowledgement of your representation/formal objection.  All submissions will be available for public inspection in Planning & Place, Fleming House, 2 Tryst Road, Cumbernauld, G67 1JW, after the closing date and at the time of any Local Development Plan Examination.

After the Local Development Plan Examination

The Reporter will issue a Report of Examination outlining recommendations that the Council must take into account in deciding how to modify the Plan before proceeding to Adoption.

The Modified Local Development Plan

The pdf icon Local Development Plan Modified Proposed Plan [4Mb] sets out planning policy that will help guide decisions on planning applications that will shape the future of North Lanarkshire, by setting out planning policy and by identifying how land in our area is used. For example for housing, or employment use, or for green space.

The Local Development Plan Modified Proposed Plan aims to deliver sustainable safe communities, to stimulate our economy and to protect our built, historic and natural environment by promoting appropriate development and future growth.

Unfortunately owing to resource restrictions and cost of printing and posting, we are unable to distribute paper copies of the plan other than to statutory consultees.  The modified proposed plan can also be viewed at libraries, First Stop Shops, Civic Centre, Motherwell and Fleming House, Cumbernauld.
