Formal approval from Scottish Borders Council (SBC) is required for most forms of planning development, large or small and the Community Council is a statutory consultee in this process.  We therefore consider planning items at every meeting of the Community Council and would be pleased to receive your views on these matters.  Email the Community Council planning officer at

The Planning drop down menus, found under the home page Community Council menu above, will provide access to:

  • Details of recent and current planning applications
  • Planning Approval Process
  • Grounds for objecting to a planning application
