    • From Skara Brae to  Sustainable Communities Jim Mackinnon
    • “planning – for the layman  a submerged, highly  technical world surfacing  occasionally in lengthy  often incomprehensible  hearings seen as a triumph  not for clarity but the legal  profession.”
    • “To focus Government and  public services on creating  a more successful country,  with opportunities for all  of Scotland to flourish,  through increasing  sustainable economic  growth.”
    • “The ultimate test of an  effective planning system  is the maintenance and  creation of places where  people want to be.  We need to rise to that  challenge.”
    • “I ask every Scot to  pause and reflect  not on the kind of  country we are – but on the kind of  country we could be  – we should be.”
    • David I (1124-1153)– Scotland‘s First National Planner Introduced the feudal system Established law and order Reorganised the church Promoted local and foreign trade
    • All this stuff about planning and compensation and betterment. Broad vistas and all that. But give to me the eighteenth century alley, where foot-pads lurk, and the harlot plies her trade, and none of this new- fangled planning doctrine
    • Where are the conservation areas of tomorrow?... Sam Galbraith Planning Minister November 2000
    • Plans don’t accomplish anything. Theories of management don’t much matter. Endeavours succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds.
