Planning privacy notice

What we do

The Council’s Planning service prepares the city’s Local Development Plan and determines planning applications submitted either via the Scottish Government’s e-portal or on paper. It also investigates breaches of planning control through the enforcement system and administers the statutory processes in respect of planning appeals and reviews.

Planning applications and comments on them are published on the planning portal, along with any review documentation, should the application be refused.

Enforcement notices and details of enforcement enquiries are also published on the planning portal and the Council website.

Comments submitted as part of the Local Development Plan process are published on the Council website.
