In Delivering Planning Reform the Scottish Government committed to do more to effectively communicate good practice. It is therefore placing a strong emphasis on identifying and sharing good practice as it will provide :
- Evidence that Scotland's planning system is becoming more efficient and effective, and
- An opportunity to learn from one anothers experience and avoid duplication of effort.
Forums have been established to discuss issues with the new system, to identify solutions and to communicate this knowledge more broadly. These are now in place for the following topics:
Scottish Government is working with Heads of Planning Scotland, COSLA, the Improvement Service, Key Agencies and representatives of the private sector to identify and promote case studies of the new planning system in practice.
The intention is to build a resource on a wide range of topics by continually adding relevant examples. If you have a suggestion for a case study please complete the proforma and email it to Iain Mcleod.
