Planning Minister Aileen Campbell used the RTPI Scotland Annual Conference to announce a consultation early next year on proposed changes to planning fees.
David Suttie, Convenor of RTPI Scotland, said "Scottish Government recognises that planning is a key contributor to achieving well designed, sustainable communities and strong economic growth. Given this it has to ensure that it has the resources it needs to function effectively. RTPI Scotland therefore welcomes the forthcoming consultation announced by the Minister. We will work with our members across the public, private and voluntary sectors to stimulate debate to help develop solutions to the issues."
