HADAS regularly campaigns for good planning decisions in Haddington and surrounding area. We meet regularly with officials from the planning department of East Lothian Council. We work with them and other partners in the local community to encourage appropriate development, good design and the care and protection of our unique historic envionment.

HADAS comments on the strategic and local development plans for the area. We see ourselves as positive campaigners for the safeguarding and improvement of our county town and surrounding villages and countryside. In recent years we have been particularly proactive with our work to create (in partnership with other organisations and the local community) a Haddington Vision Statement and the Gifford Village Design Statement.

If you are interested in planning matters for our area we would love to hear from you.
