Planning Bill is no Christmas present for communities

1st January 1970

Furthermore, the proposals for scrutinising the National Planning Framework deny local communities an opportunity to challenge significant developments that could affect their environment and quality of life.

These two issues have been the source of such significant concern that Scottish Environment LINK and the Association of Scottish Community Councils have joined together to lodge a petition with the Parliament, which has already attracted thousands of signatures.
