We have produced a Customer Guidance Note for Community Councils setting out how they can input into planning applications
The Stirling Council planning toolbox, our newsletter below ‘Planning Application Changes your guide to new fees and changes’ and our planning procedures document explains every step of the planning application process. These documents should be read together whilst our planning toolkit document undergoes a refresh.. It will help you understand what happens to your application and what you can do to give your application the best chance of success if you are an applicant and explains the planning process and how you can make comments on planning applications if you are a neighbour or interested party.
The Toolbox is split into sections and is based around the questions we're asked most often.
- how is it decided where development should and shouldn’t happen?
- do I need planning permission?
- is the Council able to decide how it deals with development proposals?
- what types of planning applications can be submitted?
- how do I make a planning application, including pre-application advice
- how are planning applications assessed?
- how to make comment on a planning application
- who will determine the planning application?
- procedures for planning and regulation panel
- service standards – our commitments to providing a quality planning service
