Digital Transformation for Planning in Scotland

The delivery of the Digital Transformation for Planning in Scotland is well underway, following the programme’s launch in April this year.

The Scottish Government are diligent about adding updates and new articles (blogs) to our website – https://www.transformingplanning.scot/digital-planning/ and via Twitter and LinkedIn, however, they are aware that many of our stakeholders for this exciting programme do not consume their content here.

The Scottish Government would like to forge a relationship with you whereby they create content that speaks to the transformation programme activity to inform our key audiences, and that also, hopefully, will be of interest to you.

Against their 5 strategic missions:

1: to unlock the value of data for the development of digital planning solutions

2: to deliver end-to-end digital technologies that enhance the planning experience

3: to help create the conditions for digital to flourish, by engaging in a skill audit and programmes of development and CPD

4: to deploy the use of digital tools that drive connection, collaboration and engagement bringing communities closer to their local place plans and planning decision making

5: to embed a culture of digital innovation

The Scottish Government have identified 7 year one priorities that include:

Exploring Smart payment and applications for Planning and Building Standards applications in Scotland, establishing a Skills programme for planners, developing a suitable design system and Gateway entry site, supporting the digital realisation of National Planning Framework 4 – the draft of which was launched on November 8 2021, and issuing 8 initial community engagement subscriptions (from 32 that will be available across 3 years) to bring local projects closer to local place plans.

Clearly, the Scottish Government have lots of news and interesting projects underway, and they would like to make sure that those who are curious about what we are doing, and would like to understand the complexities of transforming an entire planning system, and who maybe do not have time to gather information from many sources, are exposed to their activity.
