Strategic issues - Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


    Sarah Hendry, lecturer in law at the University of Dundee, discussed some strategic issues faced by Scotland relating to planning policies and environmental law and management. The Scottish government has created a planning advice note (PAN) on master planning in order to draw strategic and high-level guidance to secure the highest quality built environments for home, work recreation, and travel in the country. The first set of policy documents includes three elements, namely, Scottish government's view for planning, their objectives, and their thematic policies on planning structures. Another new policy PAN45 has been developed for additional guidance to planning authorities (PA) regarding preparation of supplementary planning guidance under the Electricity Act. The policy addresses the key areas including technologies for electricity generation, biomass, community-based and energy distribution schemes as biofuels. The Scottish Parliament Committee on Economy, Energy, and Tourism has also been conducting an exhaustive inquiry into energy policy.
