Answered by: Kevin Stewart 11 October 2017

As stated in our ‘Places, People and Planning – Position Statement’ (June 2017) Scottish Ministers expect to commence preparation of the next National Planning Framework (NPF4) in 2018, with a view to its adoption in 2020. We will prepare a more detailed programme for the preparation of NPF4 in due course, following further discussion with stakeholders.
