Local Place Plan

A local place plan (LPP) is a proposal by a community body about the development and use of land in their community. These plans are a way for communities to set out their aspirations for how their local places might look in the future. By producing an LPP, a community will take a proactive role in the development planning process because a planning authority must consider valid LPPs when preparing a local development plan.

Local Development Plan

Every Council has to prepare a Local Development Plan for their area. This sets out proposals and policies for the development and use of land and for the protection and conservation of natural assets and amenity.  The current Local Development Plan for Midlothian was adopted on 7 November 2017.  The Council’s Planning Committee on 28 February 2023 endorsed the start of the review of the current Midlothian Local Development Plan (2017) (MLDP) and preparation of its replacement.  The replacement will be called MLDP2. 

Mayfield and Easthouses Community Council are producing a Local Place Plan on behalf of all the people that live here.

Locations are the most important information at the moment as if we can get up to date information to the council it will make it easier (and more effective) when we place requests to get them filled, etc.

Please let us know if any of the information on the map is wrong or out of date.
