Effective community engagement in local development planning guidance
This consultation is about guidance on effective community engagement in the local development planning process. It is for planning authorities and communities. The guidance forms part of the Government’s work on reform of the planning system and implementation of the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019. It supports the new approach to local development planning on which further new regulations and guidance are available.
The consultation is open until the 13th September 2023.
Local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods
This consultation is seeking views and comments on the draft local living and 20 minute neighbourhood planning guidance.
The guidance is intended to assist and support local authorities, communities, and others with an interest in local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods. It is expected to be of particular relevance in the preparation of Local Development Plans (LDPs), Local Place Plans (LPPs) and to support planning decision making.
National Planning Framework (NPF4) includes a clear commitment to think differently about our places, including local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods putting climate and nature at the forefront, tackling long standing challenges and inequalities, and leading the transition to stronger, greener, fairer and healthier communities across Scotland.
The draft guidance does not introduce any new policy requirements or duties and is simply intended to provide additional detail and clarification of existing policy in order to support effective and efficient implementation.
The consultation is open until the 20th July 2023.
