On 5 November 2019, the Scottish Government published its proposed phased work programme for reviewing permitted development rights.

It is accompanied with a Sustainability Appraisal, commissioned by Scottish Government, which sets out the likely significant environmental, social and economic effects of options for change.

You can view the consultation at: The Scottish Government would welcome comments by 28 January 2020.

Priorities flagged in the Programme for Government to address the global climate emergency, rural economy and digital communications have been given priority in this phased work programme. 

There will be further stakeholder engagement and public consultation on proposed changes for specific development types as the programme of work unfolds.
