Recent Service Upgrades - 23rd May 2018

As you may already be aware, changes to Data Protection legislation are coming into force in May (https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en).

We have recently introduced a number of changes to the service to address new privacy rules, and several of these change may affect you as a user and how you use our service, particularly if you have applications in draft or haven’t logged into your account in some time.

To find out more about what has changed, please read our new Privacy Notice and revised Terms and Conditions. Links to both are available at the bottom right hand corner of the site. 

If you have any queries on this, please contact our Support Desk on 0131 244 1450 or email us at eDevelopment@gov.scot.

How to get started with ePlanning

Once you are logged in, to get started on your form you will need to follow the ePlanning link on the left.

The process of creating a new proposal will include

  • Choosing a site address
  • Giving the proposal a name
  • Selecting which application, review or appeal form you need to complete.  

The ePlanning service was originally launched in April 2009. It is a single shared service between the Scottish Government and the 33 local planning authorities that provides consistent and easy to use forms to submit planning applications and appeals online.  The original eplanning portal was replaced in January 2016 with ePlanning.scot which now forms part of the eDevelopment.scot suite of services.

The ePlanning portal enables:

  • The electronic submission to local authorities of applications for planning permission and other related forms, such as listed building consents.
  • Electronic payment of associated fees directly to the planning authority.
  • The submission of digital copies of supporting documentation, eliminating the need to print and post.

It wil reopen again at 9am on Tuesday 29th May 2018.
