Scottish Gardening Businesses

A general discussion group for the interests of Scottish Gardening Businesses: there are many different organisations and legislations in Scotland that affect Scottish businesses rather than those based in the UK in general.

Do the new driveway planning permission regs apply in scotland as well? Was looking on the gov site but can't find anything on it.

I enquired at our local planning office when the regs came into force and they said not- got the impression the person I spoke to didn't know what I was talking about but I took her at her word and said no more. Would be interested in experiences of others.

The driveway planning regs for England do not apply to Scotland at the moment

I didn't know this at all! We have sought permission for our past 2 driveways since November...i've been giving all my customers the jargon about planning permission too...they must think i'm mental!!

I'm sure they think your just diligent! Surprised the planning office didn't say something to you. It is confusing tho - none of the websites make it clear that its just england/wales.

This is true - but it does explain the funny looks I get and long pauses in phone conversations when I'm dealing with the council offices!! Ah well no real harm done I suppose!

we were also concerned about these regulations and spent some considerable time researching them before it was clear that they did not apply in Scotland (as yet anyway). However whislt we have not saught planning permission, we do advise clients of this, and encourage them to go for the extra drainage or permeable materials in order that any driveways we lay are not running off into public drains etc

I suppose that is going to become the measure of normal practice in future Victoria!
