Our approach and what to consult us on

We are committed to helping the Scottish Government and planning authorities deliver a modern planning system that is fast and inclusive, and which delivers sustainable economic growth. Planning for Development - Our Service Statement  PDF document sets out the service Planning Authorities and other consenting authorities can expect from us in relation to planning and development proposals. The checklist  PDF document   explains when you should consult us. We have also produced more detailed guidance on how developers and consenting authorities can best engage with us at each stage of the development management process. Our Planning Performance Report  PDF document provides more information on our service and measures to help us improve.
