Planning (Development Management)

    Covid-19 Information and Guidance

    Important Update:

    Due to the current situation, and a large amount of applications received, validation is taking around 11 weeks. If all the required information is present and accurate on an application it will be backdated to the working day it was received.

    There will be no face to face meetings in connection with planning applications, unless absolutely essential, until further notice. Site visits will only take place where it is safe to do so.

    Planning Committee is scheduled to go ahead as a virtual meeting open to the public. Further details will be made available in the meeting agendas.

    We are currently unable to receive new pre-application enquiries, but for existing pre-application enquiries and general enquiries the team can be contacted via

    If anyone wants to submit an application / notification then it is strongly advised that this is done via the Planning Portal and any representations to planning applications / notifications should be sent via Planning Public Access or email

    If you have an issue relating to a breach of planning control please complete the online form.
