Amenity Notice

If a planning authority considers that the amenity of any part of land in their district is adversely affected by the condition of neighbouring land, they may serve a notice (an amenity notice) under section 179 of the Town and Country Planning (Scotland) Act 1997 requiring steps to be taken to tidy up the site. The use of such notices is not limited to land but can be applied to buildings and structures although not to a scheduled ancient monument. If used early enough it can proactively help prevent a building falling into the ‘downward spiral’ and, in cases of advanced loss of amenity, it can be part of a wider range of sanctions that might be applied. This text gives guidance on the preparation and use of such notices.
