The Falkirk Local Development Plan (LDP) is the statutory document which guides future development in the Falkirk Council area for the period 2014-2034. It was adopted by Falkirk Council on 16 July 2015.
The LDP contains a vision for the area, an overall strategy, and detailed policies and proposals indicating where development should, or should not take place. It provides criteria which Falkirk Council uses in assessing planning applications.
