April marks the anniversary of the Battle of Culloden and, with the National Trust for Scotland consulting on what new development (if any) would be acceptable near the site, and the Scottish Battlefields Trust suggesting that the land should be bought on “behalf of the nation” to safeguard it from any future development, we’re reminded of how often planning can feel like a battle for both developers and communities…
Given that the Planning (Scotland) Bill appears to have stalled in its passage through the Scottish Parliament, we thought that it would be interesting to consider how the scrutiny of legislation works in Scotland. So, this month we have a guest blog from Professor Hugh Bochel (yes, he is related!), who has a particular research interest in the workings of Scottish Parliament committees.
