Tellmescotland - Scotland's national public information notices portal

Tellmescotland is Scotland's national public notice portal.


It allows public notices from across Scotland to be published in a single online location.


Public notices are announcements that local authorities legally have to publish.


There are two types of notices:


  • Statutory notices: give notice of an intended action like road closures.
  • Non-statutory notices: provide general public information on council meetings.


Tellmescotland provides many benefits:


Informing the public



Making PINs accessible and easier to understand



Improve efficiencies of local government spend on advertising, saving money.



A national picture of statutory and public service developments with enhanced information and notification capability.



Users can register for email and SMS alerts specific to PINs within their area of choice or to browse the website and search for notices. You can sign up to receive regular alerts at:
