Apply for planning permission
Midlothian Planning Service COVID-19 Service Update
Service update (response to pandemic)
Please submit planning applications and pre-application enquiries online rather than on paper. This will help us deliver our service over the coming weeks.
The Planning Authority also strongly encourages electronic payment of planning application fees.
Paper submissions and non-electronic payments will take much longer for the Planning Authority to register under our new working arrangements. The Planning Authority will likely write to you to request an agreement to extend the time period to determine the planning application. This is a precautionary measure and will not necessarily mean that there will be a delay.
We appreciate your assistance.
Submit your planning application online using the ePlanning.scot service.
The ePlanning.scot website also allows you to download the relevant application forms if you prefer to apply by post.
Notification of commencement and completion
If you get planning permission You must tell us when you begin work on site and when you have completed work. You do this by returning the notification of initiation of development form (PDF) and the notification of completion of development form (PDF).
