Consultation of the Newtongrange Local Place Plan

We have been working on a Local Place Plan for our Community Council boundary area and began community engagement in June 2023.  We used the results from the Place Standard Tool and previous research to develop the Plan. We have now prepared a draft Local Place Plan. It has been published for public consultation (below link) and printed copies are available to view at Newtongrange Library. We are obliged to promote the plan to comply with Section 4 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Place Plans) (Scotland) Regulations 2021.

The purpose of the Local Place Plan is to outline a comprehensive strategy which reflects the collective aspirations, needs, and priorities of the Newtongrange community. This plan serves as a guiding document which articulates the vision for the area’s development and improvement over a defined period.

If you have any comments on the Plan, please send them to The deadline for comments is 16th March 2024, to allow time to take comments into consideration prior to submission to Midlothian Council by 31st March 2024.
