Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Reverse Vending Machines) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2020

Synopsis

These regulations will permit the installation of compliant reverse vending machines without planning permission, where attached conditions are met.

This change aims to help retailers meet take-back duties under the Deposit and Return Scheme for Scotland Regulations 2020.

 
 
 

Summary

The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Reverse Vending Machines) (Scotland) Amendment Order 2020 amends the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Scotland) Order 1992 and comes into force on 30 October 2020.

The legislation applies to Scotland only.

What is being changed?

The amending order inserts a new class (Class 9H) into Part 2E (Sundry Minor Operations) to Schedule 1 (Classes of Permitted Development) of the 1992 Order, regarding reverse vending machines. The installation of these on retail premises will enable retailers to meet their statutory duties under the Deposit and Return Scheme for Scotland Regulations 2020.

The Order states the conditions where development would not be permitted development and a planning application would be required, including if:

  • the reverse vending machine would exceed 3.5 metres in height;
  • its footprint would exceed 80 square metres;
  • in the case of a reverse vending machine installed in the wall of a shop, any part of the development would protrude 2 metres beyond the outer surface of that wall;
  • it would be situated within 15 metres of the curtilage of a building used for residential purposes; and
  • it would face onto and be within 5 metres of a road.

 Background

The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (Scotland) Order 1992 specifies permitted development. Qualifying developments may be constructed without the need to apply for planning permission, provided the attached conditions are met.
