Do I need planning permission for an air source system?

Air Source
Answer: 

As of December 2011, a domestic installation of an air source heat pump in Scotland is currently permitted unless:
• it would result in the presence within the cartilage of a dwelling of more than one air source heat pump
• the air source heat pump would be situated less than 100 metres from the cartilage of another dwelling
• the air source heat pump is visible from the road in a conservation area
• the air source heat pump would be within a World Heritage Site or the cartilage of a listed building
In addition, before beginning the development the developer must apply to the planning authority for:
• a determination as to whether the prior approval of the authority will be required to the siting and external appearance of the air source heat pump
• The application also needs to be accompanied by a range of other information and a number of other conditions apply.
