NPF3 Events

national planning framework 3 logo


We are holding a series of events around the country during May and June to support the public consultation on the NPF3 Main Issues Report and the draft SPP.

Drop In Events

At each location, there will be an opportunity to see what the Government is proposing for the development of Scotland over the next 20-30 years.  The events will be informal ‘drop-in’ sessions – anyone can come along for a discussion with the team during the hours below.

Scottish Government Staff will be on hand to answer questions.
