Ok, I admit I was wrong on an overall development plan but to be fair those plans have emerged(2012) a year or two after I made a personal enquiry about where I could build a house in Lerwick.
And I must say that at that time I recieved nothing but total vagueness with no help at all.
Yes, the SIC have identified land but why are they not doing more to help the issue?. What they could be doing is bringing themselves, the land owners and people who would like to build a house in Lerwick together to start developing an area.
That is what I would like to see and that to me would be a real development plan.
Kavi, these plans have been worked on for a number of years and published in various forms. Yes, there is a plan for Lerwick, it has a section of its own. The documents I found so quickly are a REAL plan. If you want to develop land, the help is there, you need to get off your butt and get backing. As for single house sites, not really in the interest of the LDP. The plan is there it to stop developers building what they want, where they want, is also allows for SDPs to be put in place.
I would say to you that you have not really tried, you find a subject on here and comment without searching.
You based your answer on a search you did nearly 4 years ago.
Also, you have to, YOURSELF identify a plot and apply, not expect a council to tell you.
The LDP is in place to make sure there is enough housing stock for the next few years and may not offer what YOU want when YOU want it.
You need to start getting up to speed with current legislation as well as stuff that has been around for more that 2 years.
