LINK Briefing: National Planning Framework 3 and the Scottish Planning Policy

11th June 2013

The NPF should make it clear that national development status does not establish the need for development at specific locations where this is not clearly defined in the NPF. NPF3 should include a commitment to progress proposals for new national parks. National development status should be given to a National Ecological Network for Scotland
