Service UpdatePlanning Service staff are continuing to work remotely and our phone lines remain closed.
We are currently receiving an extremely high volume of planning application submissions. As a consequence, it will take longer for us to validate and process your application.
Please help us to focus on progressing your application by not contacting us for updates within 21 days of making your submission.
A range of information can be found on this page, including how to apply, view and comment on an application or report unauthorised works.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
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 ePlanning.scot. 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.
