Your Council

Your council should be the starting point for general planning enquiries. It can:

  • tell you whether you need planning permission and how to apply;
  • answer questions about how it deals with individual planning applications;
  • give you advice about enforcement and local review procedures; and
  • give you information about the contents of local development plans, strategic development plans and supplementary guidance.

Contact your local council for more details. Contact information is available at:
www.gov.scot/Topics/Built-Environment/planning/Local-Planning
