Major Revamp of planning system in Scotland unveiled

Plans for major changes to Scotland’s planning system, have been published by the Scottish Government. The revamp is aimed mainly at making is easier to build more high quality homes and at reducing bureaucracy and will give local people a greater say in planning issues in their area.

A consultation on the plans will run until 4th April with a planning bill expected to be brought forward later this year.  Key changes include zoning more land for housing, promoting self-build and removing the need to apply for planning permission for more types of development.

The consultation will also seek views on new rights for communities to produce their own plans for their local areas. 

The Scottish Government has said the proposals will “support economic growth, delivery of houses and increase community involvement in planning decisions.”
