This research paper has been prepared by EKOS on behalf of Skills Development Scotland (SDS) and Partners in Planning (PiP) to review the skills challenges and gaps within the planning sector in Scotland.

In the process of compiling this report EKOS examined numerous sources of evidence (legislation/policy review, baseline and consultation) to identify the scope, nature and drivers of these issues. Bringing together this evidence and taking on board the insights and reflections of the sector, this paper outlines a wide range of actions for PiP, the RTPI and wider stakeholders/partners to take forward to help address and mitigate these issues.
