The Strategic Development Plan Areas
6. Ministers are content that the boundaries submitted by the SDPAs provide an appropriate basis for strategic planning in these city-regions. They note that the proposed boundaries were subject to consultation and reflect the guidance set out in Circular 2/2008. This determination therefore matches the boundaries proposed by the SDPAs themselves.
7. Scottish Ministers have asked Scottish Natural Heritage to report on the proposal to extend the Cairngorms National Park into parts of eastern and highland areas of Perth and Kinross Council. If this proposal is implemented, there may be a need to review the area of the Dundee, Perth, Angus and North Fife SDP area in due course. However, no such review will be carried out until after the approval of the first SDP for this area.
