The Scottish Government is reviewing two documents which are key to the operation of the Scottish planning system.
The National Planning Framework (NPF) sets the context for development planning. It provides a framework for the spatial development of Scotland as a whole for the next 20-30 years.
Scottish Planning Policy is a statement of Scottish Government policy on nationally important land use matters. These matters include economic development, housing and renewables. It also sets out the desired outcomes from the planning system, including the creation of high quality sustainable places, and increased sustainable economic growth.
Scottish Land & Estates is particularly keen to gauge member’s opinion of SPP ahead of a meeting with officials later this month. We would like to know what you think works, what doesn’t and if you have any ideas on how to improve policies contained with SPP.
