Midlothian Local Development Plan 2
  • The Local Development Plan sets out how our places will change in the future, including where development should and shouldn’t happen. 

    It describes:

    * where new homes and workplaces will be built
    * how services and facilities will be provided
    * identifies places that should be protected. 

    Councils in Scotland are legally required to prepare them. 

  • The Council is gathering information from communities, organisations, businesses and other stakeholders about the area for an Evidence Report. 

  • The link to the Midlothian Local Development Plan and surveys can be found at the following link:
