Course Planning - The Comprehensive 2019 Update


The Planning (Scotland) Bill is due to receive its Royal Assent in the summer.

The update will focus on the provisions of the Bill as passed or the Planning (Scotland) Act (as the case may be) including its provisions about a new development planning system; “simplified development zones” (delivering regulatory approvals including planning permission) through the zoning of land; changes to the development management and planning enforcement regimes; the measures which aim to improve planning authorities’ performance and the establishment of an infrastructure levy payable to councils.

The update will also provide:

  • a commentary about any recent Scottish Government planning policy, guidance and advice;
  • a review of recent court decisions (from both north and south of the border);
  • details about any noteworthy planning appeal decisions including those about “short stay commercial visitor accommodation” (including AirBnB properties) and planning obligations; and
  • updates about related areas of law (including land law and compulsory purchase including the work of the Scottish Land Commission)

Those attending this seminar will gain a better understanding of the legislative outcomes of planning reforms arising from the land-use planning reform review announced in 2015 and the issues relating to those outcomes; Scottish Government planning policy, guidance and advice, recent court decisions and the Scottish Government planning appeal decisions.
