Scottish Rural Action has submitted our members' reponse to the Scottish Government consultation on the draft National Planning Framework 4.

We agree with the assessment of the Scottish Parliament Rural Affairs, Islands and Natural Environment that “the NPF4 needs to offer more of a vision for rural and island communities” (Letter from the Convener to the Convener of the Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee, Ariane Burgess, 23 February 2022).

Our members' response highlights the many ways in which the planning system can contribute to vibrant and sustainable rural and island communities.
