    Abstract

    This paper reviews New Labour's planning legacy in Scotland to the Scottish National Party that was elected to office in May 2007. It highlights the significance of devolution in providing the political context and impetus for re-designing and reforming a more distinctive Scottish planning system. Significant factors also include the influence of European spatial planning principles and the technocratic-democratic tensions of the (New) Labour-Liberal Democratic coalition government that had promoted economic growth in Scotland during this period. The paper speculates on how the change to a Scottish National Party administration will take forward this inheritance.
