SCNP submits proposals for National Planning Framework 4
The new Planning (Scotland) Act 2019 gives NPF4 an even stronger role in the planning system and merges it with Scottish Planning Policy, so for the first time spatial and thematic policies for Scotland’s planning system will be in the same place.
SCNP’s submission sets out the significance of Scotland’s rural landscapes, calls for integration with the Land Use Strategy and makes the case for more National Parks and for better management of National Scenic Areas. It proposes a new role for Regional Parks and stronger protection for Local Landscape Areas, and supports the development of a national Nature Network across Scotland.
