Planning and building work
This section looks at how you may be affected if the council, Scottish Government or other authority, or your neighbours or a private company are carrying out building or development work in your area. If you're opposed to the work, you may be able to put a stop to it. In some cases, you may be entitled to compensation. This section applies to both home owners and tenants.
The planning system is currently undergoing some changes, to allow people and communities to become more involved in the planning process. You can find out more at the Scottish Government website.
