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.
