How do I Apply for Planning Permission?

Before you can begin to submit your application online, you'll need to register with ePlanning Scotland. This is free and only takes a couple of minutes. Once registered you can log in and begin making your application. A guide to submitting an application online is available there to guide you through the process.

Most planning applications must be accompanied by a planning application fee, without which an application cannot be validated for assessment.  The fee will depend on the type and scale of the proposed development. Please note, all drawings must have scale bars on the drawing, to allow online measurement.

The undernoted applications cannot be submitted online at this time. For those that are not available to submit online the application form can be downloaded in pdf format below.

You must have Adobe® Reader® installed on your computer before you can view or print these documents. This software is available free to install from Adobe® Website.

You will have to fill these in and send them to the Development Management Team, Glasgow City Council, 231 George Street, Glasgow G1 1RX.

Processing Agreements are a flexible tool that takes the format of an agreed framework for processing an application, ensuring that the planning process is project managed in a clear way.

Early contact with the planning authority is encouraged, especially before a Proposal of Application notice is submitted for a Major/National application. Use the form to contact the relevant Group Manager to discuss whether a processing agreement will be appropriate.
