NPF4 was laid in the Scottish Parliament on 8 November, coinciding with World Town Planning Day. 12 months after its controversial draft was published, this document places the nature and climate crises front and centre, setting an overarching spatial strategy for the future, proposed national developments that support the spatial strategy and policies for the development and use of land.  

Upon adoption NPF4 will become part of the statutory development plan and will directly influence planning decisions. Elaine Farquharson Black at Brodies will provide a briefing on NPF4, followed by discussion on its impacts, next steps and implementation of this key piece of the Scottish Government’s planning reform agenda.
