Policy and Research

  • discussing planning issues with policy makers including Ministers, MSPs and Civil Servants
  • undertaking research on Scottish planning issues

Consultations Under Consideration

We welcome Members' inputs to our policy responses.  If you are interested in contributing please contact us at
