In September 2015 we appointed an independent panel to review the Scottish planning system. On 31 May 2016 the panel published their report, Empowering Planning to Deliver Great Places. The panel also published their own statement on the report.

Ministers published their response to the report on 11 July 2016. It is divided into six sections:

  • background
  • our initial response to the independent report
  • our commitment to ambitious and inclusive planning reform
  • immediate actions
  • collaborations to define the scope of future reform
  • consultation on a white paper
