Welcome to the Leaside Area Action Plan (AAP) Consultation Page.

The Leaside AAP (linked on the left-hand side) is a planning document that sets out a strategy for growth and regeneration in the Leaside area from now until 2031. See the map below to understand the area covered by the AAP.

It will set out a vision for how the area will change, the policies the council will implement to help achieve the vision, the reasons for choosing these policies and the delivery plan for implementing the vision.

The consultation draft of the AAP includes planning policies for the Leaside area relating to:

  • Improvements to the quality and connectivity of walking and cycling links
  • New employment development, creating greater access to jobs
  • Access to community facilities
  • The type and quality of homes in the area
  • The quality and type of parks and open spaces

A number of evidence base documents have been produced as part of the AAP process, and these can be downloaded here.

In April 2021, the Planmaking team held a consultation to gather feedback on the draft document (linked on the left-hand side).

All comments and information received will be carefully analysed and will help to inform the AAP. A summary of the feedback received can be downloaded here (linked on the left-hand side).


The Covid-19 pandemic has affected the ability for us to engage on this project in more traditional forms, however this consultation page has been prepared to ensure that we continue to engage and inform the local community in a safe and secure way.
