Planning guidance and advice

What permissions do I need?

To find out if you need planning permission or a building warrant, please complete the development enquiry form below. You may also need separate permissions from other services such as housing, roads, environmental health or licensing and we advise you to check directly with the relevant service.  For additional guidance on householder development enquiries, you can also visit the Scottish Government Planning pages.
