Strategic issues - Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The Government has published an update to the Biodiversity Strategy, to take account of new activities globally and in Europe. The document cross-references recent domestic work, including the Scottish Land Use Strategy and the new Natural Capital Asset Index, and is a useful pulling together of current work in the area. Land use planning creates a broad cross-cutting framework, albeit not covering many of the rural land uses discussed above, so it is integral to the achievement of many of the Government's policy objectives, including the overarching goal of sustainable economic growth and the 16 national outcomes within the national performance framework that will assist in achieving that goal. The Scottish Planning Policy (SPP) is an important part of the policy environment and this draft will replace the first integrated SPP from 2010.
