Online Planning

The online planning histories displayed on this site may be incomplete and should not, therefore, be used as a substitute for a formal Property Enquiry Certificate.

We accept no responsibility for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained using this search access.

Similarly, the information contained in these records does not constitute a formal notification of a planning decision, and as such, any actions that are taken as a result of information displayed on this site are taken entirely at the viewer's own risk.

If you have any reason to suspect the information is incorrect or you are experiencing operational problems with the system, please email us with the subject Planning Faults to allow the matter to be investigated.

Important information

The Online Planning facility is best viewed using Internet Explorer version 6 and upwards. Certain parts of the site may not function correctly in other browsers. The Council makes every effort to virus check the files available for downloading on this site but cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage which happens from the use of downloadable material. We recommend that users re-check all downloaded material with their own virus checking software.

Online Planning can be used to search for and view application details and documentation in relation to our Planning Applications, Appeals, Local Reviews and Enforcement cases.

Plans and other documents are available for planning applications received on or after 1st January 2007, for Appeals and Local Review cases from 1st January 2001 and Enforcement cases from 1st January 2006.

Whilst every effort has been made to keep the file sizes to a minimum, some of the larger documents, or those with colour, may take some time to download for anyone with a slow internet connection. Plans and drawings available on the website are taken from original scaled drawings but the images will not appear at any particular scale on your computer screen. Dimensions shown on drawings, where included, are the only indicators of measurements on these images. All of the documents are in PDF format and you will require an AdobeĀ® ReaderĀ® to view or print PDF documents.

Copyright and Fair Processing

Copyright Notice

Plans, drawings and material submitted to the Council are protected by the Copyright Act (Section 47, 1988 Act). You may only use material which is downloaded and/or printed for consultation purposes, to compare current applications with previous schemes and to check whether developments have been completed in accordance with approved plans. Further copies must not be made without the prior permission of the copyright owner. For further information please refer to Our Copyright Notice

Fair Processing Notice

This relates to the way the Council handles personal data. Any personal data you provide to the Council required by its development management system will be handled in accordance with the following guidance. The most likely occasions you will be required to provide personal data are when submitting an application, or submitting comments on an application. This note provides information on the use of personal data when submitting comments on an application. Similar guidance is available when submitting a planning application online.

Who will process your personal data?

The information which you provide on this form will be processed by Glasgow City Council, which is the 'data controller' for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998.

What will your personal data be used for?

The personal data that you provide will be used in order to deal with your comments on planning applications and to let you know what the outcome of the application was.

Will we use your personal data for any other purpose?

We are under an obligation to manage public funds properly. Accordingly, the information that you provide will be used to ensure all sums due to us are paid timeously, e.g. by identifying persons who are non-payers of Council Tax and to improve uptake of benefits. The information may also be used to prevent and detect fraud and may be shared for the same purposes with other public bodies that handle public funds.

We will also use the information to notify you if an appeal against or request for a review of the application decision is made. This will allow you the option of making further comments at the appeal or review stage.

Will we disclose your personal data to anyone else?

Under planning legislation, letters of representation about planning applications must be made available to the public. Accordingly, your letter, including your name and address, will be made available on the internet as part of the planning documentation during the processing of the planning application. Once the application is determined, letters of representation will be removed from the documentation on the Council's website.

There are a number of exemptions within the Data Protection Act 1998 that permit disclosures to 3rd parties without the express consent of the subject of the data. Any such disclosures e.g. for crime prevention and detection, will be made in accordance with the legislation.
