Planning decisions & Committee

How we reach a decision, who we consult, what type of decision can be made, how long it takes and what happens afterwards is explained in the document below.

Planning code of practice 2014 

How we deal with a planning application 

We issue a formal decision notice to the applicant (or agent) for every application within 3 working days of the decision being made.  It clearly states whether permission is granted or refused and any conditions attached.

A copy of any decision notice for an application can be viewed and printed from our online Planning Register without charge.  We also issue a weekly list of decisions.
