How to apply
The law states that applications for planning permission must include certain information. This is likely to include the following:
- a description of the development
- the name and address of the person applying and agent (if any)
- a postal address of the land or a description of the location of the land
- a certificate of ownership and notice to owners or tenants of agricultural holdings
- a plan which clearly identifies the location of the application site
- other plans and drawings needed to describe the proposed development
- a fee
Some applications need extra information such as design and access statements.
You can apply for planning permission online using the ePlanning Scotland website. You can save your application at any time and come back to it.
Before you start, it's a good idea to:
- read the guidance on the ePlanning Scotland site
- use the 'which form?' tool if you're unsure what kind of application to submit
- find out how much it will cost using the fee calculator
Follow these 3 steps to apply:
- Create an account.
- Create and complete your planning proposal.
- Pay the application fee.
Visit ePlanning Scotland if you need to use the paper forms.
Once your Planning Authority has received your application, it will be recorded and you'll receive an acknowledgement.
