In November 2021, we laid our fourth Draft National Planning Framework (Draft NPF4) in the Scottish Parliament for Parliamentary scrutiny.
The Scottish Parliament considered the Draft NPF4 for a period of up to 120 days. Alongside Parliamentary consideration of the draft, we ran a public consultation to gather views and evidence and welcomed help from all to inform the final NPF4.
The consultation closed on 31 March 2022. We encouraged everyone to get involved in the consultation, to help shape the final NPF4. The Consultation Resources page provided a series of resources to help inform responses, details of events and community grants.
We set a series of consultation questions to help focus on the key areas of change.
We encouraged you, wherever possible, to use the Scottish Government’s Citizen Space consultation portal to respond to us.
If that was not possible, then responses were emailed to us - firstname.lastname@example.org.
We provided the consultation questions in Word Format;
Following this period, we will consider responses to the Draft before presenting a final draft to the Scottish Parliament.
During February and March 2022, Kevin Murray Associates (KMA) and PAS facilitated online Draft NPF4 events. The purpose of the informal, interactive sessions was to raise awareness and share views about the Draft NPF4.
Each session focused on a specific action area, or policy theme from Draft NPF4. The slides used at each of the events are listed below:
