The Public Information Notices (PINs) in the map are delivered from, Scotland’s Public Information Notices Portal. Public information notices are announcements that Local Authorities are legally required to publish. There are two types of PIN. Statutory Notices give required notice of an intended action, such as road closures, construction, licensing and planning/property developments. Public Notices inform people of changes to services, such as refuse collection.

Please note: The PINs shown in the map do NOT necessarily cover all the planning, traffic and licensing information that Community Councils receive from their Local Authority. The PINs published on this map covers notices from Local Authorities using the portal (31 of the 32 Local Authorities in Scotland).
