The current Planning Obligations regime came into effect on 1 February 2011. Planning obligations are a key tool in facilitating the grant of planning permission and the delivery of on-site and off-site (including education, transportation and housing) infrastructure related to developments.
This seminar will consider Planning Obligations policy (including all Circulars published by the Scottish Government); law and practice and those attending ought to gain a better understanding of:
• the policy context for, and legislation about, planning obligations (sometimes referred to as section 75 obligations or section 75 agreements);
• the specific provisions about planning obligations and related legislative provisions;
• drafting planning obligations; and
• applying for, and determining an application for, modification or discharge of a planning obligation and the related Scottish Ministers’ appeal decisions.
