Active Consultations

The Main Issue Report Consultation:   16th October until 11th December 2017.

This is the first formal stage of the preparation of a new  Local Development Plan (LDP2), which will set out its planning and development proposals for the next 10 years from 2020 and a vision for 20 years.

  This report sets out, through a series of questions, how the proposed new Local Development Plan 2 might differ from the existing Local Development Plan and asks views on those proposals. At this stage the Council has yet to reach a firm view and is seeking as much opinion as possible which will be used to inform the production of the Proposed Local Development Plan which is due to be published in 2018.

 You can view the report and respond to the consultation online at https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/ldp2. The documents can also be found at all public libraries and the council offices at 1a Manse Brae, Lochgilphead, PA31 8RD.

Community Learning and Development Plan:  31 Mar 2016 to 31 Dec 2017

The Community Learning and Development (CLD) Plan was created by the Argyll and Bute CLD Strategic Partnership in response to the CLD Strategic Guidance and legislation from the Scottish Government.

The plan allows members of the public to find out about the CLD work going on in communities around Argyll and Bute.  The plan has a simple email feedback facility that can be used to contact the partnership.
