S5W-13031: Graham Simpson (Central Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 29 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what consideration it will give to the recommendations in the UK Government’s interim report on the review of the gap between planning permission being granted and house building completion, and whether it will consider these when tackling similar issues for housing developments in Scotland.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 12 December 2017

Closing the gap between planning and delivering new homes is one of the key themes of the ongoing planning review in Scotland. We will consider all available and relevant evidence related to housing delivery as we continue to progress changes to the planning system and develop future policy.
