Should Public Information Notices be published electronically? Let the Scottish Government know your view...

Comments on the Local Authority Public Information Notices (Electronic Publication) (Scotland) Order 2010 are sought by February 12, 2010. 

This order will enable electronic publication as an alternative to the duty to advertise in printed media.

Local authorities will be released to make informed decisions about providing the most efficient and effective service for their locality whether digital or printed media.
Public information notices are announcements that local authorities are legally required to publish. There are two types of PIN:
  • Statutory Notices give required notice of an intended action, such as road closures, construction, licensing and planning/property developments.
  • Public Notices inform people of changes to services, such as refuse collection.
