In response to the draft Scottish Planning Policy (SPP), Scottish Land & Estates has encouraged the Scottish Government to support rural development across Scotland.

Summary of response:

Development plans must be deliverable

  • Support for the use of processing agreements where appropriate
  • Concern that rural development policy as draft will not enable development
  • Welcome strong emphasis on diversification
  • Support for continued protection of prime agricultural land
  • Need for better support for conversion and reuse of traditional and redundant buildings in rural areas
  • Support drive for delivery of accessible broadband.
