Planning Skills Webinar: The value of early engagement in land use planning decisions

The Planning Skills programme are joined by Kathie Pollard from the Scottish Land Commission and Nick Wright from Nick Wright Planning to look at their recent research on the value of early public engagement. This is a chance to hear about one a series of papers by Scottish Land Commission on Land, Housing & Development. The intention was to explore exactly what developers, property agents, landowners and planners in the public and private sectors believe the benefits of early engagement are and the implications for land use decision-making more widely.

Their research looks at:

- Evidence and examples of the benefits of Early Engagement, particularly from developers

- Pointers for forthcoming secondary legislation, guidance and support.
