Review of Renfrewshire Local Development Plan - Main Issues Report and Environmental Report Consultation

The adopted Renfrewshire Local Development Plan (August 2014) sets out the policies and proposals for the next ten years but is required to be revised every five years.

The Main Issues Report sets out the main changes and issues that have emerged since the adoption of the current Renfrewshire Local Development Plan, as well as setting out the Council's preferred options and alternatives for development across Renfrewshire.
