PAS provides a free, impartial, independent, enabling, and professional planning advice service (subject to eligibility) to help you understand and engage with the planning system. Our advice service is provided by volunteers, who are all fully qualified (MRTPI) and experienced planners based throughout Scotland. Our planning advice service deals with hundreds of enquiries annually from members of the public and community groups.
wide range of planning advice
PAS offers clients advice on how to represent themselves, or how to secure the services of an appropriate professional.
PAS does not have an advocacy role and does not submit planning applications or make representations on behalf of clients.
Planning can be complex. We aim to make the system as straightforward and accessible as possible.
