List of applications

These web pages provide information relating to the ‘List of Applications’ that the Council is required to maintain and publish in accordance with Regulations 21 and 22 of The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Scotland) Regulations 2013.

Valid applications, (including the application form, plans and relevant documents) will be made publicly available for viewing on the Council’s web site within five days of receipt. (See instructions, below).

In accordance with Regulation 21(5) of The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (Scotland) Regulations 2013, further information in respect of any application may be obtained at Burns House, Burns Statue Square, Ayr KA7 1UT.

Planning register

South Ayrshire is required to maintain a Planning Register, which the Council keeps in an electronic format.

The Planning Register is kept in two parts. Part I includes those applications not finally disposed of, and Part II, those applications determined by the Council.

These web pages provide information relating to Part I of the Register and as with the List of Applications are available for the purpose of wider engagement in the determination of planning and related applications. (See instructions, below).

Once an application has been determined and the period for a challenge to a decision has passed, the application will have been finally disposed of. At this time, the content of the application will no longer be published on these web pages; (although a record of an application will exist). This is to meet the requirements of the Data Protection Act. An index map displaying the historic record of applications back to 1987 is still available on this website providing general, non-personal information about planning applications. Part II of the Planning Register is available for viewing at the offices of the Planning Authority at Burns House, Burns Statue Square, Ayr KA7 1UT between the hours of Monday to Thursday 8.45am to 4.45pm and Friday 8.45am to 4pm, public holidays excluded.


To access an application, click on one of the Search options listed above. You can search by address, application reference number, applicant name or agent name. You can also search from a map by selecting the Map Search link. Select Weekly/Monthly Lists to view a list of applications submitted to the Council. Anyone can use this search facility, but to take advantage of the advanced features that allow you to save searches and track applications in your area you must first register a user account. Supporting documentation for any application is only available for current applications; (see Planning Register, above).
