Local Place Plans: Challenges & Opportunities

March 2, 2020

Local Place Plans are a new type of plan giving people an opportunity to develop proposals for the development and use of land in the place where they live. SCDC and Nick Wright Planning were commissioned by the Scottish Government to start conversations about the opportunities and challenges presented by Local Place Plans.

Using action research, they wanted to find out more about the implications of Local Place Plans for the planning system and communities.

These discussions took place with people from local communities and those who work for local authorities and national organisations - culminating in a national seminar and this report.
