The National Park Authority has welcomed the Scottish Government’s ePlanning initiative in an aim to make planning information more accessible to the public.
You can now search for and view details of planning, listed building and advertisement applications, as well as details on appeals of applications and consultations on energy projects. You can search by reference number, application/appeal type, property address and map.
You can submit comments on current applications directly through our website, which we prefer, but we can accept comments via email. Also, you can view selected documents relating to the application if the application was received after 1 January 2009.
To view online planning information you must read and accept the Terms and Conditions of Use detailed below.
Terms and Conditions of Use
Advice on Submission of InformationAny information sent to the National Park Authority regarding a planning application (including details of the person submitting the information) will be used by members of staff to process the application. As part of the Public Planning Register, the information submitted will be available for public inspection, may be put on the Authority’s website, and may be provided to anyone who requests it under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 or the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
Please remember that any letter of representation made on a planning application either through Online Planning or in writing is considered a public document.
As such, members of the public and organisations alike should note that any representations received in respect of any application will be made available for public inspection. In terms of the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 and the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, the same representations will be copied on request. The representations will be published on our website.
The author of a representation is solely responsible for its content and accuracy.
Representations that are marked as confidential or as anonymous cannot be taken into account when planning applications are being considered. Neither type of submission will be published online. Anonymous submissions will be discarded either by shredding or deletion. Whilst we will retain representations marked as confidential, they will not be referred to in consideration of an application and their confidentiality cannot be guaranteed under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 or the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. This similarly applies to submissions made by agents on behalf of clients.
Representations submitted through our Online Planning pages must include your full name, e-mail address and postal address. Responses from the Authority will be made by e-mail unless you indicate otherwise.
Representations submitted by e-mail should include your full name, e-mail address and postal address. If your address is not included the representation will be treated as confidential. If your name is not included then the representation will be treated as anonymous. Responses from the Authority will be made by e-mail unless you indicate otherwise.
Representations submitted by letter or fax should include your full name and postal address. If your address is not included the representation will be treated as confidential. If your name is not included then the representation will be treated as anonymous. Responses from the Authority will be made by letter unless you indicate otherwise and include an e-mail address.
Please note that any libelous, defamatory, or offensive representations will not be taken into account when applications are being considered and will be discarded.
