This conference discusses the Scottish Government’s plans to legislate to develop a Scottish planning system which is more strategic and enabling, better networked into other policy areas, rooted in consensual and engaged development planning and more collaborative in its structure, working and funding both internally and externally.
In other words, how do we achieve the 360˚ Planning System Scotland needs? A system capable of working collaboratively at all levels to:
- Access the skills and resources needed internally to make the system excel
- Join up processes and delivery internally with other areas such as community planning and land reform to achieve holistic policy outcomes
- Become externally enabling and cross-planning in the approach to finding effective economic and social infrastructure outcomes
- Work strategically externally to both deliver for the present and plan for the potential Scotland of the future, shaped by technological, economic and demographic change
- Timed to take place after the publication of the Scottish Government’s White Paper – and while the opportunity exists to help shape and develop the proposals contained within that White Paper – the conference will draw together all those stakeholders who together bring planning to life. Planners, developers, investors, funders, policy makers and community planning interests.
Scotland needs a 360˚ Planning System. It needs such a system if it is to meet its potential in supporting infrastructure delivery, engage fully in development planning and management, enable other policy areas such as Land Reform and Community Engagement to be more effectively rolled out and if it is to secure the level of resources and skills necessary to drive a planning system that excels.
This event will take place on Thursday the 27th of October 2017. For more information, including details of key note speakers, please see the MacKay Hannah website. To book a ticket, please click here.
