Putting People and Planet Before Profit in National Plans


Mission Statement

Our mission is to build a movement of citizens who value Scotland’s people, places and environment. Together we will campaign to ensure that decisions about how Scotland’s land is developed are fair, inclusive, locally accountable, and promote just outcomes driven by community needs rather than profit.

We believe the planning and development of Scotland’s land should:

  • Deepen democratic control over the ways places and communities change
  • Foster and value  the contributions of citizen action and engagement, ensuring that people are listened to not left feeling alienated and confused
  • Tackle the pressing crises of climate change and biodiversity,
  • Promote environmentally just outcomes
  • Put the needs of Scotland’s diverse citizens above private profits
  • Value and enhance the quality of the built and natural environment ·
  • Provide healthy and safe places for people to live.
