RTPI Scotland reacts to draft NPF3

14 January 2014

RTPI Scotland reacted positively to the publication of the draft National Planning Framework (NPF3). 

Stephen Tucker, RTPI Scotland Convenor,  said:

"The National Planning Framework, and its sister document Scottish Planning Policy, provide a great opportunity to deliver the vision for how Scotland should develop in the next 20 to 30 years. These documents should be used to help guide decisions on development and investment by all parts of Government, its agencies, utility companies, developers, investors and communities. 

We welcome the publication of the National Planning Framework and Scottish Government's recognition that planners, planning and the planning system can help to deliver ambitions for sustainable development, economic growth and creating great places for people.

Given this, we welcome the publication of the National Planning Framework and Scottish Government's recognition that planners, planning and the planning system can help to deliver ambitions for sustainable development, economic growth and creating great places for people.

We will be engaging with Parliament and others to discuss how a strong and influential NPF can help to provide the context for important decisions on Scotland's future development."
