Planning and building standards

Our teams are working remotely to continue to provide our services, however, there is likely to be a delay in responding to enquiries and dealing with your application. We remain committed to dealing with planning and building warrant applications within the timescales set out in our customer charters. To help with this a number of temporary changes have been implemented.

  • We will communicate with you by email and telephone, where possible.
  • We will no longer accept paper applications, or paper submissions of additional information. Please use the edevelopment.scot portal to submit all applications and paperwork. Additional information relating to an existing application should be submitted using the post submission form. It is essential drawing numbers and revisions are noted to avoid delays.
  • For building warrant applications you should consider the use of Certificates of Design (structure and energy) to assist the application process.
  • Please use the edevelopment.scot portal to make payments relating to your application, at the time of submission. For additional payments, if you have an internet banking facility, you can make a payment to our bank account to pay the required fee.

It is essential you quote the application reference number.
