Register of applications

List of applications

These web pages include 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 2008. These regulations also require South Ayrshire to maintain a Planning Register which the Council keeps in an electronic format. The Council has decided to publish this Register on the internet to help in the determination of planning and related applications. Further information in respect of any application including any paper copies may be obtained at Burns House, Burns Statue Square, Ayr KA7 1UT.


To access the information held on this register 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 an application is only available for applications submitted since May 2009. Accessing Planning Applications Online gives help on using this new system. You may also wish to view the document Planning Application Procedures - The Easy Read for further clarification.

Decision notices

To continue with improvements to our practices and procedures, we intend to issue decision notices only from 1st January 2010. Copies of drawings to which the decision relates will therefore no longer accompany a decision notice. The drawings to which these decisions relate are specified within the decision notice and will be published via the Council’s web-site until such time as the right of appeal has expired.

In relation to applications made to Scottish Ministers which have been notified to South Ayrshire Council, representations may be made to the Scottish Ministers at Chief Planner, Scottish Government, Directorate for the Built Environment, Victoria Quay, Edinburgh EA6 6QQ.

Privacy policy

The Council’s website privacy policy sets out the Council’s handling of information in relation to its' website and the Data Protection Act. The Council has also set out a privacy policy specific to the electronic handling of planning applications and this should be viewed in conjunction with the main policy text.

Freedom of information

Please note that all documentation associated with pre-application enquiries may, at a future date, be required to be made available to the public by virtue of a request made under the Freedom of Information Scotland Act 2002. Therefore, if there is any material that you expressly do not wish to be made publicly available you should advise the case officer of this in writing in order that your request can be given consideration.


In using these web pages you agree with and accept the following copyright disclaimer relating to plans, drawings and other material that may be available on this site.

Plans, drawings and other material submitted to South Ayrshire Council are protected by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (section 47). You may only use material which is downloaded and/or printed for consultation purposes, to compare current applications with previous schemes and to check whether developments have been completed in accordance with approved plans. Further copies must not be made without the prior permission of the copyright owner.

Planning register

When South Ayrshire receives a planning application, the application form, plans and all relevant documents are scanned. These are then made publicly available within five days.

The Register includes those applications which appear in both Part I, i.e. those applications not finally disposed of, and Part II of the Register i.e. those determined by the Council. Please note that, once the period for a challenge to a decision has passed and the application has been finally disposed of, the application will no longer be published on these web pages. 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.

The complete, historic 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 8:45 am to 4:45 pm and Friday 8:45 am to 4 pm, public holidays excluded.
