Supplementary Guidance : Planning and Education
NB: This consultation is now closed.
It was agreed at a meeting of the Development and Transport Policy Development and Scrutiny Panel on 2 April 2019 to consult on new Planning and Education Supplementary Guidance.
The previous Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) on this subject supported the adopted West Lothian Local Plan 2009 (now superceded) but is required to be replaced as the new West Lothian Local Development Plan (LDP) was adopted in September 2018.
Supplementary Guidance (SG) is produced by the council in order to explain how particular development plan policies should be applied in practice.
The West Lothian Local Development Plan identifies the circumstances in which the council will seek developer contributions for Education Infrastructure in policy INF1. This Supplementary Guidance seeks to quantify those contributions based on the LDP policy requirements.
This new SG has had regard to and is compliant with all relevant national planning policies which are set out in the Strategic Development Plan and the policies of the new LDP in relation to Planning and Education. Once approved it is intended that it will form part of the statutory supplementary guidance supporting the LDP.
