The Scottish Parliament passed the Planning (Scotland) Bill on 20 June 2019. Having now received Royal Assent, the Planning (Scotland) Act 2019 introduces changes to the planning system, including the concept of community driven Local Place Plans and wider community engagement. Julia will explain the changes proposed, why they are being proposed, and the implications for the Scottish planning system. She is keen to share good practice and lessons learnt from Scotland to a Hong Kong audience, and to spark discussion about its relevance to Hong Kong Planning. Julia will also highlight the opportunities RTPI accredited courses open up for Hong Kong students, and demonstrate the value of RTPI membership to Hong Kong based planners.
