Council launches new planning portal on web
THE SCOTTISH Government’s existing ePlanning portal is being replaced with a new one.
For the customer the new portal offers the same forms as the current one, and is accessed in exactly the same way.
The layout and functionality of the new ePlanning portal will actually stay much the same.
What is changing is the overall style and colour of the portal which will be refreshed to tie in with the new logos.
Users will have to re-register to use the new portal.
Two new forms will be available for completion online from today, the post submission additional documentation (PSAD) and the notice of review ( NoR).
In the future another two forms will be available, the appeals refusal and the appeals notice.
Over the next four years the portal is predicted to save approximately £17million across Scotland’s planning authorities and around £ 28million for applicants and agents and will mean that applications can be processed much quicker.
