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.
