Local living and 20 minute neighbourhoods

NPF4 sets out a clear commitment to think differently about our places, applying the Place Principle and delivering the National Performance Framework. The complex challenges we face – from the climate and nature crises, to poverty, disadvantage, and stark health inequalities – require a joined-up and collaborative approach to deliver positive outcomes for people and the environment. NPF4 puts climate and nature at the forefront, tackling long-standing challenges and inequalities, and leading the transition to stronger, greener, fairer, and healthier communities across Scotland. NPF4 supports the delivery of liveable places where we can live better, healthier lives. It names ‘local living’ as one of six spatial principles by which we should plan our places.

NPF4 policy 15 sets out the policy requirements to support the delivery of local living. This guidance is intended to provide further detail to support the implementation of the policy, with a focus on informing development planning and development management processes.
