Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Scotland) Order 1992. It is concerned with the further implementation in Scotland of Council Directive 85/337/EEC (OJ No L175, 5.7.85, p.40) on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment.

A new article 3(8) of the General Permitted Development Order excludes from the descriptions of development for which planning permission would otherwise be granted by article 3 any proposed development which, if it were to be the subject of a planning application, would require environmental assessment under the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Regulations 1988. Article 3(9) provides for opinions and directions as to whether proposed development would require environmental assessment to have effect for the purposes of paragraph (8). Article 3(10) excludes certain descriptions of development from the ambit of paragraph (8).
