NPF4 consultation

In 2022, the Scottish Government launched a consultation on the new National Planning Framework 4.

Play Scotland partnered with A Place in Childhood to ensure that the voices of children and young people were heard in this consultation.

What we did

  • Worked with the Scottish Government to produce a child-friendly version of the consultation.
  • Produced a podcast on engaging with children and young people on their local spaces. Listen to the podcast here.
  • Created consultation packs for groups that explained clearly how to run a successful engagement.
  • Emailed over 2,000 schools asking them to get involved.
  • Worked with Generations Working Together and YWCA to access their networks.
  • Worked with Scrap Antics to respond to the consultation with a public art installation.
  • Promoted the consultation on social media, garnering over 30,000 impressions.
  • Sent out certificates to all the groups that submitted a response.
