Scottish Planning Policy SPP 6: Renewable Energy: Consultation Draft


Modernising Planning

7. The Executive is modernising Scotland's planning system, in response to its 2003 Partnership Agreement commitment to improve the planning system, strengthen involvement of communities, speed up decisions, reflect local views better and allow quicker investment decisions. Proposals for modernisation reinforce the primacy of development plans so that development takes place in the context of a long-term and inclusive vision for the future. Effective development planning should provide a framework which makes positive provision for sustainable development in a way that takes account of the relationship between economic, social and environmental priorities.
