20. As a result of the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019, the statutory development plan will also include the National Planning Framework which will incorporate national planning policies alongside the spatial strategy.  It is expected that this will reduce the need for many policies to be repeated in local development plans.

68. In respect of this protected characteristic, a body subject to the Public Sector Equality Duty (which includes Scottish Government) only needs to comply with the first need of the duty (to eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Equality Act 2010) and only in relation to work.  This is because the parts of the Act covering services and public functions, premises, education etc. do not apply to that protected characteristic. Equality impact assessment within the Scottish Government does not require assessment against the protected characteristic of Marriage and Civil Partnership unless the policy or practice relates to work, for example HR policies and practices.
