tellmescotland, Scotland's national public notice portal, has been updated by the Improvement Service to incorporate new developments.

The new look tellmescotland site is now supported by mygovscot myaccount, the easy way to access public services online in Scotland, streamlining the process for the public and businesses to sign up for tellmescotland and access public information notices (PINs) in their local area.

The new site has also improved the process of uploading PINs to the tellmescotland portal, making it easier for local authority staff.

There are two types of public notices that local authorities publish:

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

tellmescotland makes these PINs more accessible and easier to understand, allowing users to register for email and text alerts specific to notices within their area of choice or to browse the website and search for notices.

In addition, the portal improves efficiencies of local government, reducing their spend on advertising and providing a platform that enables the public to easily access important information on planning, roads and licensing in their local area.
