Planning permission

You may need planning permission, a building warrant or consent to carry out work on a historic building or site, particularly if it is protected (designated).

You should check what permissions are needed with your planning authority before you undertake any work. Go to the Scottish Government website to access the online planning portals of Scotland’s planning authorities.
