Abstract

The Planning (Scotland) Bill 2017 seeks to effect further significant changes to
the Scottish planning system to supplement those introduced through the Planning
etc. (Scotland) Act 2006. In an acknowledgement of a decline in trust in the
planning system the Bill allows community bodies to produce their own local place
plans (LPPs). This paper reviews the regulatory framework governing the
preparation of similar plans in England before considering the proposals for LPPs
in Scotland. It then examines the concerns raised by the Scottish Parliament about
the proposals and finally considers a critical geographical mismatch issue
overlooked by planning reformers.
