The Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning are one of the Government’s most prestigious awards. They celebrate achievements in planning, from the detail of processing to the bigger picture of creating places which will become the legacy of our professionalism.
The judges have carefully considered all the applications. Having shortlisted 34 projects in the five categories of Partnership, Place, Plans and Process, plus this year Children and Young People. They have now recognised 25 projects with awards for 2018.
