PCS Response to the Local Development Plan 2 (Proposed)

Towards the end of 2020, Scottish Borders Council published an updated Proposed Local Development Plan which was available for comment between the 2nd of November 2020 and the 25th of January 2021. This document set out a framework designed to inform future land use and planning policy decision-making in the Scottish Borders for the next ten years.

Following careful consideration of the local issues outlined in the report, the Peebles Civic Society submitted a response on behalf of its members. You can download a full copy of that response here.
