Scotland’s National Planning Framework sets out a spatial strategy to guide future development and land use over the next 20 to 30 years. National Planning Framework 3 (NPF3), the Scottish Government's current strategy, was published in 2014, following extensive public engagement and full scrutiny by the Scottish Parliament.
It aims to make Scotland:
- a successful, sustainable place
- a low carbon place
- natural, resilient place
- a connected place
Progress of the 30 key actions and 14 national developments listed in the third National Planning Framework has been published in the Scottish Government's monitoring report.
