Planning payment options

We have provided a number of options to allow you to make your payment to us. When making your payment please ensure that you provide us with enough details so that we can match the payment with your application. This will make our validation process more efficient.

You can make your payment using either a debit or credit card.

Scottish Government's ePlanning portal

If you submit your application online using the Scottish Government portal you may also make your payment online.  This ensures that your application and payment are received together which speeds up the validation process.  You will be given a reference number as confirmation of payment.  This is the easiest and quickest way to submit your application.

Dumfries and Galloway Council Online "Pay for it" Payments

You can access the payment section by clicking Pay for it below and selecting the planning option and then planning application option.

If you have an application reference number, enter this in the Planning Application Reference Box. You can also make a payment without a Planning Application reference number.  To ensure that we can match your payment to your application when we receive it, please include the following information when completing the payment screens.  Examples are provided below.

  • In the Planning Application Number Box enter either your Planning Reference Number or the site address
  • Add the amount you intend to pay i.e. £300.00
  • If you need to pay for both a Planning Application and a Building Warrant, please make sure that you have selected the correct choice in the Pay For It section.  We require all of the above information to allow us to match your payment with your application.  If we do not have the information this will delay the validation of your application.

If you are wishing to make a payment over the value of £20,000 please email
