Coronavirus (COVID-19): planning guidance on pre-application consultations for public events - Scotland

Guidance has been issued on the temporary suspension of the requirement for public events in relation to pre-application consultation (PAC) and on both the effect of the Town and Country Planning (Miscellaneous Temporary Modifications) (Coronavirus) (Scotland) Regulations 2020, which makes that temporary suspension, and on alternative online consultation.

The guidance states that the COVID-19 emergency means it is not currently possible to hold public meetings without unacceptably posing a significant risk to public health. So that the development management system can continue to function and that planning applications can continue to be submitted, the Scottish Government have put in place legislation to temporarily suspend the requirement for a public event in relation to Pre-Application Consultation (PAC).

This note provides guidance on both the effect of the Town and Country Planning (Miscellaneous Temporary Modifications) (Coronavirus) (Scotland) Regulations 2020, which makes that temporary suspension, and on alternative online consultation.
