ScotStat Committees/Groups

The Scottish Government consults users and providers of the statistics which relate to Planning via the Built Environment Committee. The main objective of the Committee is:

  • Through liaison between users and providers of statistics on the built environment - including statistics on housing and planning issues- identify the key strategic statistical information required by all interested parties, develop and implement a strategy for prioritising and meeting these needs while minimising the burden on data suppliers and maintaining quality fit for purpose.

Further information on the Committee's remit, membership, associated working groups as well as meeting papers are available on the Built Environment Committee's page within the Housing and Regeneration topic:

Key Stakeholders
