Question S3W-4629

To ask the Scottish Executive whether it will amend Planning Advice Note (PAN) 65: Planning and Open Space in relation to the section entitled "Council or developers making arrangements with a suitable third party, for example, the Scottish Greenbelt Company, for long term maintenance", in light of the concerns raised in Trish Godman’s Members’ Business debate on 6 September 2007 (Offi cial Report c. 1565) on this subject and by Jim Devine MP at Westminster.

PAN 65 was published in January 2003. The advice supports the policy set out in National Planning Policy Guideline (NPPG) 11: Sport, Physical Recreation and Open Space (published 1996), which will shortly be replaced by SPP 11: Open Space and Physical Activity . The majority of the content of PAN 65 continues to be regarded as useful and it has not been our intention to review the PAN at this stage. However, as we move to publication of the finalised SPP 11 we will consider the implications for PAN 65.
