Planning Reform discussion goes online

The Scottish Government has opened an online discussion forum to help broaden the debate on the future shape of the planning system in Scotland.

As a part of the on-going review of planning, the independent panel are keen to give anyone with a view on the Scottish planning system a further opportunity to feed in thoughts and recommendations on how the planning system can be improved.

Comments are welcomed on the six key themes, or on the wider planning system. The themes are:
• Development planning;
• Housing delivery;
• Planning for infrastructure;
• Further improvements to development management;
• Leadership, resourcing and skills; and
• Community engagement

Feedback gathered from the forum will be fed-back to the panel for consideration; supplementary to the formal call for written evidence which closed in early December 2015.

The discussion will take place at https://ideas.scotland.gov.uk/independent-review-of-planning and will be open until midday on 8 February 2016.

All responses to the initial call for submissions have now been posted on the Scottish Government's 'Review' webpage: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Built-Environment/planning/Review-of-Planning
