Effective community engagement in local development planning guidance: impact assessments

These impact assessments have informed the preparation the effective community engagement in local development planning consultation draft guidance. The assessments are being made available for comment in advance of their finalisation and finalisation of the guidance.

5. Engagement

5.1. These assessments have been desk based, framed by the Impact Assessment work already undertaken in relation to the local development plans regulations and guidance. The ECEG development involved the Community Engagement Working Group, Heads of Planning Scotland (HoPS), and is now subject to a public consultation exercise along with these impact assessments.

5.2. Given the partial nature of the assessments to allow for engagement to happen, your responses to the impact assessments are welcomed. Information on how to respond to this consultation can be found in Section 2.
