Pre-application advice, non-material variations and certificates of lawfulness

There are charges for pre-application advice, certificates of lawfulness and non-material variations and you should view the relevant guidance notes for details of these fees and also further information on each topic.

If you are seeking brief verbal advice that can be given over the phone then you are welcome to contact the planning duty officer on 0300 1234510.  For more complex enquiries we may ask you to submit a formal pre-application enquiry.  

If you are seeking information on householder permitted development then this can be found in the Scottish Government circular on the topic which is a user friendly guide.
