Further information on how to make a representation can be found via glasgow.gov.uk/makeacomment. The Council will only consider representations made on valid planning grounds. These are called “material considerations” and some examples are listed below:

  • Contrary to City Plan/Structure Plan
  • Residential amenity e.g. noise, overshadowing
  • Effect on listed buildings and conservation areas
  • Impact on natural environament
  • Appearance (design, materials, etc)
  • Traffic, parking or access problems

Most applications are dealt with under the terms of the Scheme of Delegation. This is available via glasgow.gov.uk/planningguidance. Other applications are presented to the Planning Applications Committee for decision. In some cases this Committee can take the final decision on the application, whilst in other cases the application requires to be referred to the Full Council. Irrespective of how the application is decided, any material objections you submit within the specified period will be considered in the decision-making process.
