National Planning Framework 4 Call for Ideas: Evidence now published

July 7, 2020 by No Comments | Category Architecture, Planning

We have now published the evidence gathered as part of our National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4) Call for Ideas.

Our Call for Ideas launched on 9 January and ran to the end of April 2020.   Whilst we were disappointed that our Scotplan Roadshow was cut short, we are extremely pleased with the level of information gathered through this early engagement process which covers a wide breadth of issues and provides a rich evidence base for the development of NPF4.

We received nearly 350 written responses, 180 people joined us in workshop sessions and a further 100 people came to speak to us at drop in sessions and at the Gathering in Glasgow.   The Royal Town Planning Institute Scotland also hosted chapter events for us engaging with over 100 delegates.   Thanks to all for participating.

We will publish a formal analysis of the written responses later in the summer.

We will continue to digest the evidence base over the summer as we draft a position statement for publication in the autumn.
