Planning Appeals On-line
The Directorate for Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) plays an important role in the Planning Appeals system in Scotland. The DPEA is responsible for the administration of over 20 different types of casework.
For most cases, we publish all the case documents to the website allowing you to see all the information that the reporter takes into account in considering a case. There may be reasons why documents are not available on-line. If you require copies of documents that are not on-line, please call 01324 696400 or e-mail email@example.com and we will try to make them available to you. Once a decision is made, all the documentation will remain on the website for a further 12 weeks, after which only the originating documents and decision notice will remain on the website. After 10 years, from the date of the decision, we remove all case documentation in compliance with the Scottish Governments archiving and retention policy. However, if you wish to receive a copy of a decision notice you can obtain this from the National Library of Scotland.
In order to comply with the Data Protection Act (DPA) we remove all signatures, personal telephone numbers, and personal e-mail addresses from documents that we publish. The main Scottish Government web site provides further information on our publication, policy.
This website is updated throughout the day.
