How to get started with ePlanning

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

What is the ePlanning portal?

The ePlanning portal 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.  A refreshed eplanning portal was introduced in January 2016 and ePlanning.scot  now forms part of the eDevelopment.scot suite of services.

The 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.
