The template was generally welcomed but would benefit from some changes and additions to make it clearer and more useful.

We made the suggested changes to the Delivery of Development Sites Guidance (or explained why if we chose not to make a change). The Guidance was approved by the Council's Strategic Policy and Resources Committee on the 25 November 2020 and has now been adopted as non-statutory guidance.

Policy 23: Delivery of Development Sites of the Perth & Kinross Local Development Plan 2 requires all landowners and / or developers to produce a Delivery Strategy for all sites allocated in the Plan and for residential windfall sites of 10+ dwellings. This Delivery of Development Sites Template sets out a template to help landowners and / or developers to comply with this requirement.

Why your views matter

This is new non-statutory guidance and this consultation will provide an opportunity for all stakeholders to make comments on the content of the Delivery of Development Sites Template guidance. All responses to the consultation will be fully considered and will be used to inform any further modifications.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

We consulted Scottish Natural Heritage, Historic Environment Scotland and Scottish Environment Protection Agency to check whether this supplementary guidance is likely to raise issues of significant environmental impact. We also considered the criteria that are set out in the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005.

The Council has determined that the Delivery of Development Sites Template guidance is unlikely to have significant environmental effects and has therefore decided that Strategic Environmental Assessment is not required. Our Screening Determination sets this out in more detail.
