Planning Applications

You can view valid planning applications and associated documents online using the City of Edinburgh’s Planning and Building Standards Portal.   This online service also enables you to comment on planning applications and provides information on what are material or non-material considerations in relation to such comments.

In the “Simple Search” enter the reference number or a keyword such as the street name and then click ‘Search’ to view the application you are interested in.  If you get a number of results you may have to select the application you are seeking.

In the “Advanced Search” scroll down the page until you see the Community Council box, click on the down arrow at the end of the box to display a list of community councils, click on ‘Firrhill’ or ‘Firrhill pre 17 November 2006’ and then click 'Search', which is at the bottom of the page, to view all planning applications applicable to this area.  Other details can be inserted if you want to refine the search a bit more.

Please find below a link to an updated advice note on how to use the portal. It has step by step guidance with screen shots on how to register, search for applications (including map search), save searches and track applications.
