|01 Consultation Website||The website for the consultation on the review of the planning system|
In 2015 Ministers commissioned an independent panel to undertake a review of the planning system. The review included opportunities to get involved through both written and oral evidence and an online discussion forum. Since then we have been working with a wide range of stakeholders, including community representatives, public and private sectors, to explore potential changes to the planning system. Ministers signalled in the Programme for Government that a Planning Bill would be brought forward early in the Parliamentary Session (Year 2). To enable that, consultation on the key components of the legislation has been scheduled for 10 January to 4 April 2017.
The consultation paper provides details of proposed changes to the planning system in Scotland and seeks respondent's views on them.
Please see our Participation Statement which sets out how to get involved in the consultation.
