15 Parliaments response Process: – Public engagement – Parliaments role Content and relationship with wider policy: – links overlap and synergies: peatland, waste, heat, sustainable patterns of development, flooding, climate change adaptation, infrastructure investment, active travel National developments: – General support for proposals – Additional national developments suggested: e.g. national ecological network, rail freight Overall spatial balance: – South of Scotland, rural areas, Glasgow, Aberdeen Wider comments on planning performance – resourcing, role and effectiveness of development plans SPP – Greater clarity on key issues: wind and wild land, unconventional gas – Calls for additional guidance: restoration, flooding, waste, sustainable transport

16 Next steps Have regard to Parliaments comments Finalise NPF3 and SPP – Respond to Parliament – Conformity report (Participation Statement commitments) – Conclude assessments (e.g. SEA Post Adoption Statement, HRA Record) Publish June 2014

17 Development Planning Forum Integration of Community Planning and Development Planning

18 Background Parliamentary scrutiny of NPF3 and SPP Local Government and Regeneration Committee: – How will NPF3 / SPP support community planning? – How do SOAs ensure connections between land use and community planning

19 Minister for Local Government and Planning: I fully acknowledge there is a need to strengthen the links between land use planning and community planning. I expect this to improve….to instigate change, I will ensure that the matter is discussed at the Scottish Governments national development planning forum in March 2014

20 Scope for stronger links? SOAs aim to be plans for place Shared agenda: – Infrastructure improvements, regeneration, population change, greener and safer neighbourhoods, improved health, better services, employment, civic pride and community identity – locality based approaches within community planning …but requires partnership working / people to make the links – issuing guidance is not the answer – relationships and collaboration – locally specific solutions

21 Is this already happening? Do we need to strengthen the links? Can we demonstrate the benefits of closer alignment? Are there examples of how this works within local authorities? Would it be helpful SG to gather and share best practice? Other opportunities for improvement?
