Help shape Midlothian plan

PUBLIC views are being sought on a new Midlothian Local Development Plan.

Midlothian Council is preparing an updated development strategy and planning policy framework to guide growth and investment across Midlothian to 2024.

The Main Issues Report seeks views on where new housing, economic and retail development should be located and on possible changes to planning policy.

An Environmental Report, which considers any significant environmental effects of the development strategy and policy changes, is also available for comment.

The Main Issues Report and all supporting documents are available on the council’s website at

The consultation runs until the end of August.
