Policy and Research

RTPI Scotland aims to lead thinking in how planning can create great places for people. We do this by:

  • responding to policy consultations from Scottish Government, agencies and other organisations
  • discussing planning issues with policy makers including Ministers, MSPs and Civil Servants
  • undertaking research on Scottish planning issues

Consultations Under Consideration

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