ePlanning Scotland take up accelerates

The ePlanning Scotland portal has seen a significant growth in popularity in the last year which has been marked by two key milestones.

Over 60% of all applications and appeals are now submitted online, in preference to paper-based applications.
In February 2015 the 100,000th application was submitted through ePlanning Scotland.
The portal currently handles about  2,200 applications and appeals a month and is being hailed as an example of the Scottish Government's continued commitment to provide a successful online service in partnership with local government. A comparable service for Building Standards is next up and should be good to go by Summer 2016.  Both businesses and public users will be able to apply for building warrants and submit completion certificates online.
