MORAY’S local development plan will go before communities during a public roadshow.
The plan, which has been featured by ‘The Scot’ in recent months, will guide all council development and planning decisions for the next 10 years and beyond.
A series of drop-in events will provide an opportunity for residents to ask planners questions and seek clarification on the proposed plan.
Senior planning officer Rowena MacDougall said 3,700 letters have been sent to occupiers and neighbours of sites proposed for development in the plan.
The council’s planing team has started reviewing responses from many of these people.
The deadline for responses is May 2.
Any unresolved representations about the proposed plan will be submitted to the Scottish Government for examination.
A Reporter will examine the issues and representations made and make a recommendation to the Council on whether the plan requires to be amended.
