Application checklist

If you need permission or consent for your development check our helpful checklists of what information, drawings, plans and fees will be required.

When we receive your application, it will be checked for accuracy and for the fullness of the information supplied. It will not be registered if relevant information is missing. This not only helps us to deal with the application efficiently, it also makes sure that everyone have a full picture of what is being proposed. In the long run this should help you get a speedier decision.

What should I provide when I submit my application?


Information on  planning application fees can be found in the icon Scale of Current Fees [347Kb]. There is also a fee calculatoravailable on the Scottish Government's website, though this doesn't account for mixed developments. Fees can be paid by debit or credit card via the e-Planning website when submitting your application or by calling our Customer Service Centre on 01738 475300. 

Please be aware an additional fee of £61.10 is required for the advertisement of some planning applications.

This advertisement fee will be requested after the application has been registered and checked.
