Response to Draft National Planning Framework 2
Friends of the Earth Scotland is an independent member of the Friends of the Earth International network. We undertake research, advocacy and campaigning activities throughout Scotland in pursuit of positive solutions to the challenge of climate change.
Friends of the Earth Scotland welcomes debate on the Draft National Planning Framework 2 and the strategic long-term development of Scotland, as decisions made today will have lasting and often irreversible impacts. Friends of the Earth Scotland continues to support the statutory status given to the NPF as a strong guide to both local authorities and developers, however we remain concerned about the robustness of the scrutiny process. This paper outlines our concerns.
