Viewing Plans

In addition to the information accessible online, Part II of the register containing the drawings, specifications, certificates, and other information used to determine the application, such as soil tests is available for inspection at the Municipal Buildings, Clyde Square, Greenock subject to restrictions. For individual dwellings, access is limited to anyone with an interest in the dwelling, such as the current or prospective owner or tenant of the building or an adjoining (attached) building. For applications where it has been indicated on the application form that there is a security concern, access will only be permitted with the written permission of the owner. These restrictions are not affected by the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Due to the high volume of records and the search time involved, information is only accessible by prior arrangement.

Please note there is a £41.20 fee for the search and retrieval of any file.
