Strategic Development Plan

The Strategic Development Plan (SDP) for South East Scotland

The Strategic Development Planning Authority for Edinburgh and South East Scotland (SESplan) is responsible for the preparation of the Strategic Development Plan (SDP) for south east Scotland.

SESplan is made up of 6 local authorities. These are:

  • City of Edinburgh Council,
  • Fife Council (only the southern part of Fife is covered by the south east Scotland SDP)
  • West Lothian Council
  • East Lothian Council
  • Midlothian Council
  • Scottish Borders Council

The first SDP (June 2013) sets the strategic policy framework and development strategy for growth and environmental protection in this part of Scotland to 2032.

The next Strategic Development Plan - Main Issues Report

Work on the next Strategic Development Plan (SDP2), has commenced, with SESplan expecting SDP2 to be approved by Summer 2018. A Main Issues Report for SDP2 has been published for public consultation, details of which can be found on the SESplan website. The consultation period runs from 21 July to 30 September 2015.
