1. Overview

1.1 Permitted development rights ( PDR) for fish farms were introduced by The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Fish Farming) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2012 and the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Scotland) Amendment (No. 2) Order 2012.

1.2 The consultation paper for the 2012 Order noted that there would be opportunity to review the operation of PDR in light of experience and to consider whether to relax the requirements for prior notification. The Scottish Government committed to a review of PDR for fish farms which commenced in 2015.

1.3 This consultation asks for responses regarding a number of proposed changes to PDR for fish and shellfish farms.
