Preliminary work has started on our third Falkirk Local Development Plan (LDP3). This will be prepared under the new procedures brought in by the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019, with a process that is significantly different from LDP2.

The first step will be to draft our Development Plan Scheme which will set out the expected programme for LDP3 and will include a Participation Statement, containing information on how we intend to engage with people throughout the process. To inform the Participation Statement, we invited people to complete a short survey telling us their barriers, preferences and ideas for getting involved with LDP3. A consultation report has been published, summarising the 96 responses to the survey which ran from 29 August 2022 to 11 November 2022.

A range of evidence will be gathered to help prepare LDP3 and its associated Evidence Report. This evidence will take many forms including research, early engagement and technical reports on particular topics.
