Raised Structure Consent content

The Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982, Section 89, requires that the use of a “raised structure” must be approved by the relevant local authority. In this context, “raised structure” means a platform, stand, staging or other similar structure, which provides seating or standing accommodation. This requirement does not apply where, a Building Warrant has been granted or, scaffolding or similar equipment is used in connection with building works.

The Service has to be satisfied that the raised structure:

  • has been safely constructed and secured, and;
  • has sufficient means of access and egress, including means of escape in an emergency situation.

The Service may also specify any conditions deemed necessary for the use of the raised structure, including the maximum number of persons permitted to use it.

An application form and plans should be submitted at least 14 days prior to the proposed date of use of the raised structure.

Forms may be obtained in person from: Building Standards, Floor 6 Dundee House, North Lindsay St Dundee, DD1 1LS
