Review of Supplementary Guidance

Alongside the preparation of a new Local Development Plan, we are also reviewing all 36 adopted Supplementary Guidance (SG) documents that currently form part of the development plan.

Supplementary Guidance documents support policies within the Local Development Plan by providing more detailed information. They are used in addition to the Local Development Plan to guide new development and assess planning applications made to the Council.

Supplementary Guidance on a range of different topics is being consolidated and updated as appropriate. In most cases the changes being proposed to each policy area are minor and it is simply a case of rolling forward the documents to the new plan.
It is expected the guidance will be re-adopted alongside the new Local Development Plan early next year.


There is a requirement for public consultation on supplementary guidance to allow anyone who may wish to make comment to do so. Any comments received will be taken into account in finalising each document before it is adopted. Guidance on the following four subjects is the first to be published for consultation:

Comments on these four draft Supplementary Guidance documents can be made up until Friday 12th January 2018.

The current Supplementary Guidance remains in place until the new Local Development Plan is adopted.

Strategic Environmental Assessment

After compiling a Screening Report, Stirling Council as the Responsible Authority has determined under section 8(1) of the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005 that a Strategic Environmental Assessment is not required for each of the above Supplementary Guidance.
