Renfrewshire Council

Search for a planning application or appeal

There will be a new online search for planning applications and appeals on 12 April 2021.

From 12 March to 12 April 2021 there will be a transition period between the current online search for planning applications and the new one. This means there will be some changes to how you search for planning applications or appeals during this four-week period.  

During the transition period, you should check both the current planning applications and appeals online search and the new planning applications and appeals online search to make sure you have all of the correct information on the planning application or appeal you are looking for. 


New planning applications

You can submit your planning application or appeal as normal on the Scottish Government ePlanning Portal at any stage during this transition period. 


Applications made before 12 March 2021

If you submit a planning application on or before 12 March 2021, and we have validated it, you will see the details on the current planning applications and appeals online search

However, the progress of the planning application will not be updated here during the four-week transition period. You will need to wait until 12 April 2021 to check the progress of your application on the new online search for planning applications.  

You can contact us directly about your application at dc@renfrewshire.gov.uk or call us at 0300 300 0144 . 

We will continue to progress new and existing planning applications and will issue decisions throughout the transition period. 

If you submit a planning application, and it doesn't include all the relevant information or the correct fee, it won't be progressed by the Planning team until after 12 April 2021. 


Applications made between 12 March 2021 and 12 April 2021

If you submit a planning application after 12 March 2021, and we have validated it, you will see the details on the new planning applications online search.  

You will need to register on the new planning applications online search, even if you are already registered on the current one. 


Objections or support of applications

During the transition period, you can still submit comments on a planning application by email to dc@renfrewshire.gov.uk. You won't be able to do this online until the new planning applications register is online on 12 April 2021.
