In normal circumstances legislation (Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997 and the Planning (Listed Building Consent and Conservation Area Consent Procedure) (Scotland) Regulations 2015) requires that the Planning Authority posts a notice on site where it is considering -

  • an application for listed building consent;
  • an application for conservation area consent;
  • a planning application which affects the character or appearance of a conservation area; or
  • an application for the winning or working of minerals.

The Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020 temporarily removes that requirement and allows for notices to be posted online instead. The applications listed below fall into that category.

You can view each application on our public access system by entering the relevant application number in the search field. At this time we invite our citizens to register on our public access system. By doing so you can optionally choose to be automatically notified of planning applications close by.

Representations may be made to the Director of Development Services. We have temporarily extended the period allowed for comments to 28 days. Comments should be submitted online or by email to:

Or directly to the case officer.

For the time being we recommend against submitting representations or comments by post as there is no guarantee they will reach the case officer. A guide explaining how the application will be dealt with and the procedures we follow is also available on our website.
