Service UpdateFife Council Contact Centre is no longer dealing with a range of normal business calls, including those to the Planning Service. The majority of our staff are working remotely and whilst it may take us a little longer than normal, we are doing our best to operate as close to a normal service as possible. This means that we are continuing to respond to enquiries as well as processing both current and new planning applications.
Our pages are designed to help you through the planning application process.
To find out if you need planning permission we recommend that you read the information on our page Apply for Planning Permission. This provides details of the type of work that is permitted. Extra advice is available on the Scottish Government pages.
You can carry out some development without the need for planning permission. For example, you may be able to build extensions, porches, sheds, garages, decking, fences and access ramps. There will still be certain restrictions relating to conservation areas and listed buildings. Even if planning permission is not required, there may be a need for a Building Warrant.
