Scottish Local Planning Authority Ecological Expertise and Capacity Survey Report (March 2022)

The purpose of the survey, issued by CIEEM in collaboration with the Association of Local Government Ecologists (ALGE), is to establish current Local Planning Authority (LPA) ecological expertise and capacity in Scotland. The survey was issued as a follow-up to an event organised by CIEEM which brought together Scottish Local Planning Authorities to discuss the emerging NPF4, and specifically Policy 3 and the Developing with Nature Guidance; read the report here.
