Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997
There have recently been numerous important reforms to planning legislation in Scotland. The absence of consolidating legislation necessitates constant cros-referencing between the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 and those provisions of the Planning etc (Scotland) act 2006 which amend the 1997 Act. This book draws together the two Acts and presents the 1997 Act fully up-to-date with all changes made to it.
The book includes a substantial introduction guiding the reader through key amendments and explaining their importance. This introductory commentary also provides explanation of the main reasons behind, and the objectives of, the more important of the recent reforms, such as: placing the National Planning Framework in a statutory footing; the new development planning regime; the introduction of the new hierarchy of development; the provisions for enhancing the involvement of the public in development management.
The stand-alone provisions of the 2006 Act are also reproduced in a separate section.
