Blackness General Economic Development Area – Proposed Design Framework ConsultationΒ 

In line with the requirements of the newly adopted Local Development Plan 2019, the Planning team are preparing a Design Framework for β€˜Proposal 1: Blackness Regeneration’ (LDP 2019 p.26 & 27). See LDP 2019 β€˜Written Statement’

The proposed framework is designed to stimulate the development of vacant, derelict and underused land and buildings within the Blackness General Economic Development Area, primarily by introducing further, complementary, land uses.

As well as improving employment opportunities and productivity, the framework highlights the potential to make the Blackness GEDA a more vibrant and high quality place by improving the quality of the built environment; strengthening the existing character and identity; increasing connectivity; and making the area more attractive, safe and welcoming.

The following link provides a copy of the proposed Design Framework. Please note that this information will be available from Thursday 29th August. Β Β
