Coun­cil launches new plan­ning por­tal on web

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
