With consultation on Scottish Planning Reform (SPR) ending this week, we brought together voices from across the facets of Scottish property industry, not to analyse the reform proposals themselves, but consider the wider challenges they signal for the industry and specifically relations between the public and private sector. Is the ‘presumption’ removal proposal a signal of wider challenges for the sector? How can we de-politicise the process? Why not a nationally set housing target or bolder NPF conversations and ambitions from Government? Influencers and practitioners Irene Beautyman, RTPI Conveynor, Craig Whelton, Burges Salmon and Gary Smith, Hallam Land join Stephen Tucker (compare) and Colin Lavety from our Scotland team to debate the hot topic that is the Scottish planning system.
