Planning for great places

Our Planning for Development Service Statement 2018

Our engagement with the planning system supports our ambitions for connecting people and nature. We are helping to make Scotland the best place to live, work, visit and do business.

We put place-making at the heart of the way we work. In partnership with other key agencies and stakeholders, we demonstrate how nature can help make successful, high-quality places where people can thrive.

We are putting more resources into working with business and industry. We want to help them maximise the contribution nature makes to inclusive and sustainable economic growth. We also want to do more to enable developers and communities to achieve the right development in the right place.

This Service Statement explains how we will work with others to: 

  • share knowledge about Scotland’s nature;
  • invest in nature;
  • support plan and place-making;
  • provide advice that enables good development.
