Planning Applications: Official - Scotland Edit

This new planning applications data has been created using a custom built 'Cloud Connector Framework' which enables the automated collection of data from local data systems on a DAILY basis. There are 2 layers: Points & Polygons. Currently missing POLYGON data from East Ayrshire 'Development management' is the name given to the process of deciding planning applications and various other associated activities including enforcement of planning controls. For the purposes of planning applications, development in Scotland is put into one of three categories – 'local', 'major' or 'national'. The different categories mean that applications are treated in a way which is suited to the size and complexity of the proposed development and the issues they are likely to raise. Most applications will be for 'local' developments. 'Major' developments include applications for 50 or more homes, certain waste, water, transport and energy-related developments, and larger retail developments. 'National' developments are specific projects which have been identified in the National Planning Framework because of their national importance. Scottish Ministers become involved in a small minority of cases, but only do so where it involves a matter of genuine national interest. We strongly recommend that, when using the WFS for this dataset, because of it's size you should use it with a filter. For example with the attributes 'local_authority' and 'year'. A powerBI dashboard highlighting some data quality issues we have found is available to view at https://app.powerbi.com/view?r=eyJrIjoiM2U2MWVmMTItOGQxNC00NmNkLWFhYTAtZmQxMjA3NjJhZDRkIiwidCI6IjdiYmUyMDM3LWMzZGMtNGU4Ny1iMTdiLTZiZDJkMjI3MWY0NyIsImMiOjh9
