Local Place Plans - Tool kits and useful links
To help your community understand the various steps required in preparing a Local Place Plan, the Council have produced the following toolkits.
These toolkits will be kept up to date as we learn more from those communities preparing Local Place Plans. We may add others as and when required.
The Scottish Community Development Centre and Nick Wright Planning developed a draft 'How to' Guide aimed at supporting communities to prepare Local Place Plans. An updated version is anticipated.
