Below are links to the planning areas of the Scottish Councils web sites and should provide information on any Development, Structure and Local Plans owned by the Councils.

Strategic Development Plans

As a result of the 2006 Planning Act many plans will be replaced over the next few years by Strategic Development Plans (SDPs) covering the regions around the four main cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee and by Local Development Plans (LDPs). These will cover the whole of Scotland and are likely to be of particular interest to people in rural areas.
The Scottish Government has produced A Brief Guide to Strategic Development Plans in Scotland  which provides a useful introduction to SDPs.

Information currently available on each of the four plans is as follows :
