Welcome to SESplan

The South East Scotland Strategic Development Planning Authority, SESplan, is a partnership of six member authorities including Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, Fife, Scottish Borders and West Lothian, working together on strategic development planning matters.

SESplan's key role is to prepare and maintain an up to date Strategic Development Plan (SDP) for the South East Scotland area.  This process involves engaging key stakeholders and the wider community.  The first SDP was approved by Scottish Ministers on 27 June 2013.

Proposed Plan Approved

SESplan's new Proposed Strategic Development Plan was approved for Publication at the Joint Committee on 20 June.

Once the decision has been confirmed by all of the six SESplan Councils, we will then publish the Proposed Plan for public comment. This will start in September for a period of six weeks. However, in order to allow everyone to have a longer time to review the Proposed Plan, preview versions of it and the accompanying documents are now available to download below.

Supporting Documents – Action Programme, Housing Background Paper & Transport Appraisal

Please note that there may be some minor presentational changes between these versions and the publication versions in September. The Environmental Report and Habitats Regulations Appraisal will also be available in September. 

The Proposed Strategic Development Plan has been prepared after consideration of the feedback from the Main Issues Report consultation last year and in partnership with the six SESplan councils.  It is expected that the Proposed Strategic Development Plan will replace the current Strategic Development Plan in 2018.
