The Planning (Scotland) Bill will place up to 63 new duties and responsibilities on planners without providing additional resources to undertake them, according to RTPI Scotland.

A further 25 responsibilities will be placed on the Scottish Government.

The obligations were introduced into the bill after debate in the Scottish Parliament at stage 2 of its passage. These include the need for planning authorities to make sure that local development plans assess the need for public toilets, water refill points, and preserving disused railway infrastructure.
