Local Place Plans

Moray Council is preparing a new Local Development Plan and it is important that it is shaped by the views and aspirations of communities across Moray. This new plan will replace the Moray Local Development Plan 2020 and will set out a place based approach for the whole of Moray.

To allow communities to have a more direct role in the decisions that influence their place, when preparing the next Local Development Plan the Council must consider any registered Local Place Plan. These are community-led plans, setting out proposals for the development and use of land and offer communities the opportunity to develop proposals for their local area, expressing their aspirations and ambitions for future change. Once they have been registered by the planning authority, there is a legal responsibility to take them into account in the preparation of the Local Development Plan.

The Scottish Government has prepared a draft guide designed to help communities decide whether a Local Place Plan is the right thing for them, and how to go about preparing one.

The Council is inviting communities to prepare Local Place Plans so they can play a proactive role in defining the future of their places. To register an interest in preparing a Local Place Plan for your area please email localplaceplans@moray.gov.uk including details of the name of your community group and a map of the area you wish the Local Place Plan to cover.
