PAS has responded to the Scottish Government’s consultation paper on the introduction of the Socio-Economic Duty.
This is part of a series of Scottish Government measures to ask public authorities in Scotland to do more to tackle the inequalities of outcome caused by socio-economic disadvantage.
PAS responded strongly in favour of this duty, noting the origins of the British planning system in addressing health and inequality, and making decisions in the public good. In particular, PAS welcomes the application of the socio-economic duty to Local Development Plans.
