  • Draft National Planning Framework 4 - consultation

    Created: 06/01/2022

    This Scottish Government consultation is seeking views and comments on the draft National Planning Framework 4 (NPF4).

    NPF4 will, when adopted, set out the Scottish Governments priorities and policies for the planning system up to 2045 and how its approach to planning and development will help to achieve a net zero, sustainable Scotland by 2045. NPF4 differs from previous NPFs in two ways. It incorporates Scottish Planning Policy and the NPF into a single document and will form a part of the statutory development plan.

    The consultation is open until 31 March 2022.

    NPF4 is a large document and covers a wide range of topics, including National developments, the National Spatial Strategy and national policies. You may find it helpful to refer back to the draft NPF4 when considering responses to questions.

    The consultation also includes questions on the Draft NPF4:Integrated Impact Assessment Reports. You can find these here.
