Scottish Land & Estates makes comment on Next Planning Framework

Scottish Land & Estates has this week submitted views on the National Planning Framework 3 Main Issues Report. In our response, we encourage the Scottish Government to work with the rural sector in meeting national objectives.

Summary of response:

  • Continued support for cohesion between NPF and Scottish Planning Policy
  • Disappointment that the Scottish Government has opted for evolution rather then revolution
  • Welcome emphasis placed on decarbonising the heat sector
  • Agree that there is a need for clearer spatial guidance for onshore wind
  • Support for grid enhancements
  • Stress importance of delivering accessible broadband across Scotland
  • Support for transparency and consultation on the NPF Action Plan
