Our Role in Planning

Community Councils are statutory consultees for planning applications submitted to local authorities in Scotland. As such, we are able to ensure that the views of the community are heard for any developments in our area.

Generally, MCTCC will generally only comment on major developments or work that will impact on the area. Representations made by MCTCC in relation to any planning application will be recorded on the Council’s planning portal.

We will publish details of upcoming public consultation events here, as well as new major planning applications.

We are also consulted on licensing applications for bars, restaurants and shops, and will discuss these at our regular meetings.

If you’d like to comment on a planning application, the Planning Democracy website has very useful guides to help you.
