  • RTPI Scotland comments on Rights of Appeal

    RTPI Scotland has written and open letter with 9 other organisations that sets out our views on the opportunity for the Planning Bill to put communities at the heart of planning through ensuring that they are engaged early and meaningfully. It also outlines why we do not believe that introducing a third party or ‘fair’ right of appeal is necessary or desirable.
