Having recently published the work programme for our planning reforms, we are now putting it into action.
We have laid four sets of regulations in the Scottish Parliament, to bring various parts of the Act into force. We’ve published a note explaining what the regulations do, and when they will take effect.
We’ve started discussing with a range of people how early work on Regional Spatial Strategies might shape up and have been raising awareness of the NPF4 engagement that will begin early next year. You can find out more and keep up with future developments on our blogs.
As outlined in the work programme, preparation of a consultation paper on reviewing the Planning Performance and Fee Regimes is well underway. To help inform the consultation paper we held a series of workshops with a wide range of stakeholders from 21st to 24th October and a summary of those discussions is due to be published shortly. Keep an eye out for that and the forthcoming consultation.
We have published our Sustainability Appraisal and proposed work programme on reviewing Permitted Development Rights. Early priorities include measures to address the global climate emergency, rural economy and digital communications, as well as looking again at Hill Tracks. We would welcome comments on the prioritisation and the sustainability appraisal by28 January 2020.
