NPF3 resource pack

Dear Stakeholder

NATIONAL PLANNING FRAMEWORK – A PLAN FOR SCOTLAND
Ambition, Opportunity, Place

The Scottish Government has begun work on Scotland’s third National Planning Framework (NPF3).  This will be an important part of the Scottish planning system.  It can have implications for: the way your authority area develops over the next 30 years; your planning authority’s development plan; and on how planning decisions are made.

The Scottish Government is committed to encouraging interest and wide public involvement in the preparation of NPF3.  Over autumn 2012, the Scottish Government is seeking views from a wide range of stakeholders on what should be contained within NPF3 and has prepared the following resource pack for those who wish to contribute to the discussion.

The resource pack contains the following information:

This is the first stage in the preparation of NPF3.  As well as preparing this resource pack, the Scottish Government is holding a number of stakeholder events around the country in November.  You can find out more on the Scottish Government’s NPF webpage: www.scotland.gov.uk/npf3

UPDATE: Posters have been prepared for the events, which give further information on NPF3 and SPP review.
