A&DS has published it’s Planning Performance Framework which demonstrates how the organisation is supporting a high quality planning service, that is focussed on delivering better places, through corporate activity that is responsive to customers’ needs by tailoring resources to prioritise and be proportionate when offering support across the range of planning considerations.
Two major planning consultation responses have also been published:
A&DS’s consultation response on the draft Scottish Planning Policy (SPP) welcomes a strong commitment to a design-led planning system whose purpose is to deliver better places. We particularly welcome an emphasis on good placemaking as the essence and outcome of planning.
A&DS’s consultation response to the draft National Planning Framework 3 (NPF3) welcomes a strong commitment to high quality placemaking derived from a design led, place based approach that connects across major ‘themes’ to enable an integrated and joined-up place solution.
