Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan – Special Landscape Areas

Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2016. Proposed Supplementary Guidance 9 – Special Landscape Areas – Consultation.
As part of the preparation of the new Local Development Plan which is expected to be adopted in late 2016, Aberdeenshire Council has been working to develop a new local landscape designation, known as a “Special Landscape Area”. If approved these areas will have special protection from ill conceived development proposals within their areas. 10 candidate SLAs have now been proposed and your views and comments are sought.
There are 2 areas with Alford and its surroundings listed.  Please send your comments (especially positive ones) as no positive comments received are deemed to show lack of support. Public comment will close on 13th May.
