Review of permitted development rights - phase 2 consultation

Closed 3 Aug 2022

Opened 11 May 2022


The Scottish Government is carrying out a review of permitted development rights (PDR) as part of our wider planning reform programme. The PDR review is being taken forward in phases, with each phase focussing on specific development types. Through Phase 2 of the PDR review programme, we are seeking views on proposed changes relating to:

  • Electric vehicle charging infrastructure
  • Changes of use in city, town and local centres
  • Port development

Read the consultation paper.

Why your views matter

Consultation and feedback is an essential part of the policy making process.  Comments will inform the development of final proposals, which will be brought into force through regulations which the Scottish Government aims to lay in Parliament later this year.
