S5W-19332: Monica Lennon (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 10 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to update Planning Advice Note 2/2010: Affordable Housing and Housing Plan Audits.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 24 October 2018

The Scottish Government will review the National Planning Framework (NPF), including the Scottish Planning Policy (SPP) after the Planning (Scotland) Bill has been considered by the Scottish Parliament. Our policy approach to planning for housing is expected to change as a result of the Bill. Our existing guidance - Planning Advice Note 2/2010 - Affordable Housing and Housing Land Audits, will be reviewed in relation to the new policy.

In the meantime, as confirmed in a letter from the Chief Planner issued in November 2017, the policy position on planning for housing is set out in Scottish Planning Policy (SPP), supported by Planning Advice Note (PAN) 2/2010.
