Reviewing and extending permitted development rights: Scottish Government consultation

Consultation has been issued on the Scottish Government's proposed work programme for reviewing and extending permitted development rights in Scotland.

This document sets out the Scottish Government’s proposed programme for substantially reviewing and extending Permitted Development Rights (PDR) in Scotland (‘the proposed work programme’). The Independent Panel which reviewed the planning system recommended exploring extensions to PDR in their report, Empowering Planning to Deliver Great Places. The Scottish Government subsequently asked Heads of Planning Scotland to consider this issue and make recommendations for changes to PDR.
Having considered the recommendations of the Independent Panel, the views from Heads of Planning Scotland and responses to the consultations on Places People and Planning, the Scottish Government identified 16 development types for further consideration of extensions or changes to PDR.
