Dear Sir or Madam

THE TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING (NOTIFICATION OF APPLICATIONS) (SCOTLAND) AMENDMENT DIRECTION 2006
NOTIFICATION OF PLANNING APPLICATIONS

Introduction

1. This Circular amends requirements set out in The Scottish Office Development Department Circular No 4/1997 relating to the notification of planning applications. It incorporates, in the Annex, the Town and Country Planning (Notification of Applications) (Scotland) Amendment Direction 2006, which gives force to the amended requirements and is issued to coincide with the publication of Scottish Planning Policy 21: Green Belts.

Green Belts

2. Scottish Planning Policy 21: Green Belts announces new procedures relating to the control of development in green belts. As a result, planning authorities will now be required to notify the Scottish Ministers when they intend to approve an application for planning permission for development falling within an area of land designated as green belt, where the development is contrary to the development plan.

Effective Date

3. The Direction which gives statutory effect to these changes (The Town and Country Planning (Notification of Applications) (Scotland) Amendment Direction 2006, is incorporated within, and shall have effect from the date of this Circular.

Further Copies and Enquiries
