Just before the recent Scottish Parliament election the Scottish Government published proposals for regulations to support the development of Local Place Plans. Accompanying the consultation paper, it also published a draft ‘How to’ Guide and asked people to send it comments by 25 June 2021.

Local Place Plans (LPPs) offer the opportunity for a community led, but collaborative, approach to creating great local places. LPPs can support community aspirations on the big challenges for a future Scotland, such as responding to the global climate emergency and tackling inequalities, and help shape local planning policies and development priorities contained in the Local Development Plan. Through projects such as ‘Alliance for Action’ SURF and its members have a rich vein of experience on developing community-led plans.

The Government is looking to support people, groups and organisations which may have an interest in the outcome of the consultation and support them in responding to the consultation, or in submitting views on the draft ‘How to’ Guide. The SURF network has the opportunity to take part in an online discussion on the consultation.

Beginning with a short introduction from the Government, you will then have the opportunity to contribute to a question and answer session.

The content of the discussion will inform the SURF response to the consultation.
