The Strategic Development Planning Authority for Edinburgh and South East Scotland, has published its proposed Strategic Development Plan for public consultation, SESplan 2.

The proposed Plan deals with a range of strategic planning issues including housing, transport and green infrastructure and sets out a strategy for the City Region over a twenty year period from 2018 to 2038. The proposed Plan can be viewed here.

The current SESplan has played a key role in numerous major planning applications and appeals, and SESplan2 will be an equally important document for those in the development sector, setting housing targets and priorities across the City Region. Representations to the plan must be made in writing and submitted by no later than 24 November 2016 using SESplan’s consultation portal.
