Planning authority case reference number: AMH/2205/1/1

Scottish Ministers may intervene in determining a planning proposal, whether an application or an appeal, where it is felt there is a national interest in doing so. We make all correspondence between ourselves, planning authorities and Historic Environment Scotland relating to each case's progress available to the public.

A decision by ministers is final. However, you may seek an appeal to the Court of Session within 6 weeks of the final decision. The Court of Session cannot change a decision, but it can force Ministers to reconsider one.

The attached documents relate to planning application to the proposed excavation of ramparts and test pitting of lower citadel at Burghead, fort, graveyard and chapel, including the Clavie (ref. SMC-MRY-001):

  • clearance letter
  • Planning and Architecture Division assessment report
  • letter commencing consideration period
