Planning obligations consultation

Our Planning Law sub-committee ran a public consultation on the subject of planning obligations, between 25 November 2019 and 3 February 2020 and we are now pleased to share our findings, in the following documents.

These papers set out our proposals, based on the evidence gathered through the 31 consultation responses we received and at subsequent discussion events. Our findings and proposals have been reported to Scottish Government and will contribute to their review of planning obligations.
