Local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods
This impact assessment report update relates to the draft guidance on Local living and 20 Minute Neighbourhoods, produced to support the fourth National Planning Framework (NPF4).
Local Living and 20 minute neighbourhoods are included within the policy framework of NPF4, adopted by Scottish Ministers on 13th February. The concept of local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods is intended to support places where people can meet the majority of their daily needs within a reasonable distance of their home, preferably through active travel modes or by public transport.
NPF4 was the subject of extensive consultation and parliamentary scrutiny and an Integrated Impact Assessment (IIA), involving a number of statutory and non-statutory assessments, was prepared for NPF4 and is available on the Transforming Planning website.
The policy intent and outcomes for Local Living and 20 minute neighbourhoods were included within this assessment process. Therefore, the impact of the policy has already been assessed and this updated report summarises key content relevant to local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods gathered as part of the previous impact assessment process. Additional content on the impacts of the draft guidance has been added where relevant or necessary.
