Section 29:  Call-in of applications by Scottish Ministers:  further provision

166.Section 29 inserts a new section 46A into the 1997 Act. This requires the Scottish Ministers to lay before the Scottish Parliament and publish a statement setting out the circumstances in which they consider it appropriate to give directions under section 46(1) requiring planning applications to be referred (“called-in”) to be determined by Ministers rather than the planning authority. The statement may be revised or replaced from time to time.
