Engender response to the Scottish Government ‘Call for ideas’ for the National Planning Framework 4

This is a response to the Scottish Government ‘Call for ideas’ for the National Planning Framework 4. To date, gender equality has not been integrated into the public planning system in Scotland. However, women experience and navigate public space very differently to men.

This response was drafted before measures to mitigate the impacts of Covid-19 were instituted. Since March, the scale of impact of these measures has brought to line an enormous range of issues, many of which have direct links to how we use public space, for example, a lack of access to green space including for children, and the design of cities restricting the ability to safely social distance (pavement widths). Additionally, demand on health and social care, including women’s unpaid care roles has expanded enormously. Women’s lesser access to digital forms or participation and increased responsibilities for care and domestic work add to their exclusion from consultation processes.

Date of publication: May 2020.
