“With its ambitious vision and framework for delivery, this Strategy focusses our minds on building a digital planning system that is not just fit for 2020 or 2021, but a system that looks to the future, embracing new technologies and creating a foundation ready for changes that will come along in years to come, including those that right now would sound only aspirational.

This is a hugely exciting time to be involved in planning in Scotland, and we look forward to working with partners in transforming places together.”
