AFTER a specially convened meeting last month, members of Stonehaven and District Community Council, SDCC, will discuss the possibility of undertaking a local place plan at their meeting tomorrow evening (Tuesday, March 8).

Local Place Plans are a new type of plan giving communities an opportunity to develop proposals for the development and use of land in the place where they live. In effect, a local place plan would map out where and what development residents would like to see happening in Stonehaven – it is an opportunity for a community to set out its own vision of the future.

Assuming all requirements were met, an approved local place plan would have due significance – and would be referred to while Aberdeenshire Council worked towards its next Local Development Plan that should be adopted in or before 2027.

It was quite clear from the presentation made to SDCC on February 22, that the development of a local place plan would need require a good deal of input and effort – with the planning officers offering support to the project.
