The Shetland Local Development Plan (LDP) 2014 was adopted by the Council on 26th September 2014 and is the established planning policy for Shetland. It has been prepared to assist with the delivery of sustainable economic growth and the preservation of the natural and built environment of Shetland including its rich cultural and landscape heritage and ways of life, whilst making sure we can continue to provide 21st century communications and infrastructure to communities that are growing and changing. It sets out the Council's land use strategy which recognises existing developments, promotes sustainable economic growth and conserves Shetland's natural and built environment.

During the course of the consultation it has become apparent that the Supplementary Guidance Document - Local Landscape Areas contains some formatting and typographical errors.
In particular we want to highlight an error on page four of the document which references
Policy N3, this should in fact reference Policy NH4 within the Local Development Plan. We apologise for any confusion this has caused.
