Development management is the part of the planning system that deals with applications for planning permission and other related applications, such as those for listed building, conservation area and advertisement consent.
As new buildings are built, we need to make sure that the Falkirk Council area maintains the right mix of homes, work spaces, local shops and open space to meet the needs of the residents and businesses.
We investigate breaches of planning rules and makes sure that developments are built in agreement with the approved plans.
Our Development Management Charter sets out the aims of the Development Management Unit and our targets for achieving the Council's vision. The document sets out what users can expect from the Unit and provides a guide to the planning process from pre-application discussions through to completion of development.
