Response to the City Development Plan

This is a copy of the email I have received from Glasgow City Council. Govan Graving Docks can be found in the Development Plan Examination list under Issue 24 –



The above plan was submitted to Scottish Ministers on 24 June 2015 for examination.  Scottish Ministers have appointed Timothy Brian BA(Hons) DipURP MRTPI as Reporter to carry out the examination of the above plan in accordance with Section 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 (as amended).  Copies of the Proposed Plan, together with supporting documents are available for inspection, free of charge, at the Council’s offices at 231 George Street, Glasgow, G1 1RX during normal opening hours, and at all Glasgow City Council public libraries.  Copies can also be viewed on the council’s website:


The Reporter will now commence the examination of conformity with the council’s participation statement as required by the Act.  I can also confirm that the examination of the above plan will not commence until the examination of conformity with the Council’s participation statement has concluded, or until four weeks from the date of the appointment of the Reporter, whichever is the latter.  The earliest date upon which the examination of issues raised in representations to the Plan will commence is 23 July 2015.


You had previously made a representation to the Council regarding this plan and Scottish Ministers have been made aware that your representation has not been resolved.  The Council has provided the Reporter with a summary of the issues that the Council considers should be assessed at the examination (as notified to you in February of this year), together with a copy of your full representation and any supporting documentation you submitted with it.


Information about the examination and the summary of the issues (“Schedule 4 Forms”) being addressed by the Reporter can be found at the Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) website:


Please note that additional Reporters may be appointed to support the speedy delivery of the examination report and you will be advised of any further appointments.


You do not need to take any action in response to this letter.  The Reporter is not expected to require further information from you but, if he does, the DPEA will write to you, specifying what is needed, how you should submit it and the deadline for submission.


A guidance note that explains development plan examinations for people who have submitted representations is available at the weblink below:


Should you require further information about the progress of the examination, please contact Morag Smith by telephone at 01324 696460, by e-mail at:, or by post:
