PAS promotes education for all in the planning process, to encourage community engagement in creating positive places. With over 20 years of experience, the expertise of our staff and volunteers inspires and empowers people across Scotland.

PAS offers specialist training for Planning Authorities on how to better engage with their local communities in the preparation of their Development Plans. There are a variety of ways in which PAS can assist with community engagement in the Development Plan process as illustrated in the graphic below:

PAS has recently assisted the following planning authorities in different aspects of their Development Plan process:

  • East Lothian Council
  • Glasgow City Council
  • Falkirk Council

Whether through facilitated events, ‘planning surgeries ‘ for members of the public or specific training around Development Plan Examinations or Proposed Plans, planning authorities and members of the public benefit from PAS’s independence and impartiality, creating a neutral and trusted space for learning and discussion.
