The second National Planning Framework (NPF2) was published in June 2009. It sets the spatial strategy for Scotland’s development to 2030, and designates 14 national developments of strategic importance to Scotland. The Environmental Report and other background material is available in the information archive.
To ensure effective delivery, NPF2 is supported by an Action Programme setting out how and by whom the national developments and other key elements of the NPF strategy will be implemented.
The NPF2 Monitoring Report, published in March 2012, reports on progress in delivering the strategy. The Monitoring Report also reports on monitoring required as part of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) process.
Work on the third National Planning Framework (NPF3) is underway.
