Advice on Submission of Information

Any information sent to the National Park Authority regarding a planning application (including details of the person submitting the information) will be used by members of staff to process the application. As part of the Public Planning Register, the information submitted will be available for public inspection, may be put on the AuthorityÂ’s website, and may be provided to anyone who requests it under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 or the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Members of the public and members of organisations should note that any representations received by the Park Authority in respect of any application, either through Online Planning or in writing, is considered a public document and will be made available for public inspection.

Representations that are marked confidential or submitted anonymously cannot be taken into account when planning applications are being considered, or published online. Anonymous submissions will be discarded either by shredding or deletion. We will retain representations marked confidential but they will not be referred to in consideration of an application and their confidentiality cannot be guaranteed under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 or the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. This also applies to submissions made by agents on behalf of clients.

Representations submitted through our Online Planning pages must include your full name, e-mail address and postal address. Responses from the Park Authority will be made by e-mail unless you indicate otherwise.

Representations submitted by e-mail should include your full name, e-mail address and postal address. If your address is not included the representation will be treated as confidential. If your name is not included then the representation will be treated as anonymous. Responses from the Authority will be made by e-mail unless you indicate otherwise.

Representations submitted by letter or fax should include your full name and postal address. If your address is not included the representation will be treated as confidential. If your name is not included then the representation will be treated as anonymous. Responses from the Authority will be made by letter unless you indicate otherwise and include an e-mail address.

Please note that any libellous, defamatory, or offensive representations will not be taken into account when applications are being considered and will be discarded either by shredding or deletion.
