From skara brae to sustainable communities perth june 2010

  1. 1. From Skara Brae to  Sustainable Communities Jim Mackinnon
  2. 2. “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.”
  3. 3. “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.”
  4. 4. “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.”
  5. 5. “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.”
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. Where are the conservation areas of tomorrow?... Sam Galbraith Planning Minister November 2000
  9. 9. 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.
