Apply & pay for planning permission

We are encouraging all customers to use our online services. By using this method for both the submission and payment of applications it speeds up the process as well as removing any delays as we try to match payments with applications.  If you require help when trying to submit your application online there is a user guide available at Scottish Government’s ePlanning portal at  This will provide step by step support to make this method of submitting an application as easy as possible. You can complete your full application online including any payments required. Information on fees can be found on the Costs and How to Pay section below.

A guidance document is available on the Heads of Planning Scotland website which is designed to assist you through the process of submitting your application which should be read along with Fife Council’s Validation Standards.

You may also require a Building Warrant for your proposed works.  Please check out the information on these pages.
