Campaigns & Advocacy

We campaign for change by

Raising awareness of the problems with planning, for example: writing articles and blog posts.

Influencing legislation and policy, for example: Responding to consultations and giving evidence in Parliament.

Championing the community voice, for example: Speaking at conferences and events where the community voice is often not heard.

Enabling others to get their voice heard, for example: holding events in Parliament to allow people to speak directly to politicians.

Challenging misinformation and misrepresentation of communities and their issues, for example: making films that explain the community perspective (watch our film: I am not a nimby).

Defending community rights, for example: supporting strategic legal action such as the Hunterston case.

Collaborating for change, for example: partnership working with other organisations and networks Scottish Environment LINK, Scottish Community Alliance, and the Built Environment Forum Scotland (BEFS).

Influencing opinion and directing attention, for example: holding demonstrations outside Parliament during the development of new planning legislation.

Getting our issues onto the political agenda, for example: attending party conferences and holding fringe events.
