Viewmont office works – licensing applications

Council office at Viewmount, Stonehaven is being refurbished. The works start from Monday, 3rd June 2019 and are expected to be completed by August 2020. If you are making an application for one of the following licences, permits or permissions, this might affect you:

During the refurbishment works you won’t be able to:

  • access the car park
  • access the licensing reception at the portacabin
  • make payments by cash

You can access the building via the steep steps up from Arduthie Road and via the Registrars Office entrance where a new temporary reception area is in place.

While works are ongoing, paying by cheque through postal applications can be the easiest way to apply. Please post your application to:

Legal and Governance
Arduthie Road

Alternatively, you can make a telephone payment. If you choose this payment method please put a note on your application requesting to pay by telephone together with your contact number. Our team will then contact you to take your payment.

We can still make ID checks and immigration checks at the temporary reception but please make all other enquiries by email to

If you would like to make a payment at any other service points, these are unchanged.
