Call for sites and consultation on site selection
South Ayrshire Local Development Plan
South Ayrshire Council published its Main Issues Report in May 2010, as part of
the work involved with preparing a Local Development Plan for South Ayrshire. In
this respect, the Council recently sought submissions from any interested party
who wished to promote a potential development site for possible inclusion in the
Local Development Plan.
The consultation period for this has now closed; however this process attracted
a significant response, with over 130 sites being promoted. These sites have now
been mapped and are presented in the following interactive map.
Help on using this interactive map is available.
Sites submitted for consideration will not be automatically included in the Local
Development Plan, but will be assessed against appropriate technical information
and will be subject to widespread engagement with communities and consultation with
key parties. At the Main Issues Report stage, and the Planning Forum will be a key
consultee in this exercise. Applications for membership of the Planning Forum are
still being accepted on the Council website as below.
In addition, as part of the consultation on the Main Issues Report, the Council
invited interested parties to influence the way that the sites that are submitted
will be taken forward as preferred areas for development. The feedback from this
consultation exercise will be used in developing a land-use map and in developing
policy options for the Main Issues Report. Feedback from this exercise will also
be published on this website; but this has been useful in obtaining the views of
the public and development industry in relation to key planning issues for South
