Planning Aid Scotland is a Company Limited by Guarantee and a Charity, registered in Scotland. It is defined by its Memorandum and Articles of Association.

We are a charity and social enterprise that helps people to navigate the planning system. We support a planning system that is inclusive, positive and innovative, where individuals and communities have the opportunity to shape the future of their place in an impartial, open and inclusive way. Through our facilitation-based approach, we help people participate in the planning system to help ensure that all voices are heard.

We currently have eleven board members and are looking to recruit a new board member to assume the role

of Treasurer.

Board members are expected to take part in quarterly board meetings, these take place for a duration of around two hours, usually in the early evening. Board meetings are hybrid, with the meeting taking place in the office for those who can attend in-person, with the ability to join online for those unable to attend in-person.

The Board focuses on strategic direction and vision rather than organisational management and service delivery. In achieving this, the Board’s key consideration is how to implement the organisation’s charitable aims and objectives and Strategy.
