Local Plan. My colleagues and I will discuss the policy issues on 27th January and our conclusions will help shape the development of Aberdeenshire for the next 10 years. So we have a few short weeks to digest the contents of the Main Issues report and to look at the responses made to the report. And then decide how policy should change. I have a summary of comments made but there is also a searchable database to see the full richness of comments.
At our meeting on 27th January, we will only discuss the contentious areas so I need to read the report carefully over the next two weeks and highlight areas that worry me. If you want to flag your concerns to me also - or indeed tell me that you think that any particular policy has got it spot on - do let me know. I'll probably post more here as I digest the "heap".
There will be a further set of paper relating to settlements so I'd ask you to hang fire on comments about our towns and villages for now if possible.
