Scottish Planning Policy ( SPP) is the statement of Scottish Government policy on nationally important land use planning matters.
National Planning Framework ( NPF) is the Scottish Government's strategy for Scotland's long term spatial development.
Circulars contain Scottish Government policy on the implementation of legislation or procedures.
Statements of Scottish Government policy in the SPP, NPF and Circulars may be material considerations to be taken into account in development plans and development management decisions.
Designing Places and the West Edinburgh Planning Framework have the same status in decision making as the SPP and NPF.
Planning Advice Notes provide advice and information on technical planning matters.
