    Seminar


    Empowering Planning:
    The operation and review of the Scottish Planning System

    Mr. John McNairney
    Chief Planner,
    Scottish Government, Scotland

     

    About the Seminar:
    The Scottish Government is now leading a review of the Scottish Planning system aimed at improving delivery of housing and infrastructure and community engagement in the planning system. This review is intended to move towards legislative change later in 2017.

    This seminar will provide an overview of how the Scottish Planning system works, set out the key issues facing the system and outline how the current review of the Scottish planning system aims to address these. It will cover the role of the town planner in supporting infrastructure and housing delivery at different levels of Government and the contribution that planning can make to quality of place and well-being.


    About the Speaker:
    John McNairney is the Chief Planner at the Scottish Government where he leads the Governments Planning and Architecture Division. Over the last thirty years John has practiced as a chartered town planner in local government, in planning consultancy and, most recently, in central government. He joined central government in 1999 when the Scottish Parliament was established, initially leading a range of planning and transport policy developments. Subsequently he led implementation of the Scotland’s Freedom of Information legislation. In 2005 he was appointed Assistant Chief Planner supporting development of a range of measures to modernise Scotland’s planning system including legislative change, stakeholder collaboration and the development of Scotland’s ePlanning programme.

    John has been the Scottish Government’s Chief Planner since 2012. His team has since delivered Scotland’s third National Planning Framework - the spatial plan for Scotland - and the first full review of Scottish Planning Policy. These were awarded the Royal Town Planning Institutes’ award for excellence in infrastructure delivery in 2015. His team has also led delivery of policy to support quality of place through Creating Places, the Government’s policy statement on architecture and place and the Place Standard tool, a collaboration to engage communities on discussion on quality of place.
