The Gate Check is the stage in the process where it will be decided by an independent assessment whether the Council has enough information to prepare an LDP. It will be carried out by a Reporter appointed by Scottish Ministers. Should the Reporter decide there is sufficient information within the Evidence Report, then the Council will be allowed to move to the next step in the plan process and prepare and publish the Proposed Local Development Plan 2.

Once the Gate Check process has been completed, the Council will publish the Scottish Government's findings on this page.
