OUR VILLAGE, OUR VOICE, OUR FUTURE
Planning for our future
Together with other local groups and individuals, Mid Deeside Community Council has started work on a Local Place Plan for Aboyne.
In due course, work may start on Local Place Plans for other parts of the Mid Deeside area.

What is a Local Place Plan?
Local Place Plans (LPPs) are a new type of plan introduced by the Scottish Government to increase community involvement in planning for future development in their area. These plans take Community Action Plans one step further, often building on existing Community Action Plans.
'These plans are a way for communities to highlight issues, gather ideas and express aspirations for the future. ... LPPs offer the opportunity for a community led, but collaborative, approach to local place-making, setting out proposals for the development and use of land.' (Aberdeenshire Council)
LPPs give communities an opportunity to develop proposals for the development and use of land in the place where they live. Communities are encouraged to focus on their aspirations as well as their needs, and are empowered to play a proactive role in defining the future of their places.
Once registered, LPPs will be taken into account in the preparation of the Local Development Plan (for Aberdeenshire's current Local Develoment Plan, see here).
An LPP can be promoted and developed by:
Any individual or collection of community groups which meets the definition for community-controlled bodies
Community councils established in accordance with Part 4 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973
